Don't Panic11:03 AM
An outfit photo taken after a small downpour a few weekends ago, but nothing compared to what happened last night. What started with a steady rain in the middle of the afternoon, quickly lead to flooding of freeways, traffic jams, and street closings. Our basement flooded, a good foot in some areas, and the street outside of my house was a lake. People were using canoes to get around, cars are stalled out, and basically abandoned all over the city and the surrounding areas. I was lucky enough to have left work early enough (I work near Midtown/Eastern Market area of Detroit, and we live in a suburb just outside of the city, for you new readers out there) to have avoided the freeway, and most of the heavy flooding on the side streets. However, a manhole blew outside of our house because of all of the water pressure from the rain. This was eventually a good thing, because when the rain slowed down, the open sewer drained a good chunk of the water.
Today things are a little better, it still took me well over an hour to get to work, when it usually takes 15-20 minutes. The freeway I normally take is a lake right now, and it is supposed to rain again tonight. I am not sure what is all damaged in the basement, but I *think* we managed to get most of the important stuff out of the way. I am mostly hoping that the rain isn't too bad today so that I can clean everything, because I am not going to lie, it smells fucking gross.
Happy Tuesday, everyone.
