spring storm

IMG_4233 Our annual spring gully-washer took place this past week.

IMG_4236 It takes a special kind of storm to flood our street, and it usually happens just once a year.  River tides need to be high and rains need to be heavy to make the Avenue into a lake. 

IMG_4241 Our vantage point is pretty good for watching cars come barreling through, or brake suddenly and decide not to risk it!  Generally at least one will flood the engine.  Good for wading too.  The only tricky part?  Wanting to go out to dinner that night and having to drive across two yards to do it!
