…Some roads are rivers. Most of the early morning I was aware of a driving rain on my roof. Shortly before leaving for work, I also heard my neighbors’ chattering away in front of my house. I stepped out to see a river where the road had been: Saturday’s fears had been realized. Two cameramen were filming for the news and lots of housewives were standing around watching. A taxi was in my driveway. I’m guessing some neighbor didn’t want to drive in the bad weather. Just before I got in my car, someone raced down the street really fast and doused most of the spectators from top down. They must have seen the camera and wanted to make the news broadcast. It was shallow enough for me to escape in my little car and make it to work.
