The rain was hammering the sidewalk outside the car. I had a meeting in downtown Buffalo and if you've ever looked for parking there you know it can be a tad aggravating.
I had found a meter, which was the good news...
...bad news was that it was a few blocks away from the front door.
I don't care if I get wet.
I had my hard hat on anyway.
It's keeping the electronics dry that's the problem.
I stuffed my phone in my pocket and put the Notebook computer under my vest.
This wasn't your standard rainstorm!
An hour later I stepped through my front door at home.
I heard the pump working. Headed for the drain in the back...it was working, but there was a foot of water trying to head down it.
More water was pouring in from under the door.
I started bailing the water.
Got the campers to move a little.
As I left for Syracuse in the late afternoon, the youngest camper was shampooing the carpet.
Traffic was backed up on I-90.
The message board taunted me.
The delays were caused by a river running across the Thruway.
As I waited to cross I kept thinking about how the rainstorm had impacted the day...
...all I had planned had changed.
Nothing you can do.
Wait out the storm.
There wasn't too much damage, I suppose, and it did stop raining.
It was the flash part of it that caused the biggest problem.
Beats the hell out of snow.
