In honor of World Wide Knit in Public day, Mother Nature decided to give us a violent storm this afternoon.
Heading home from my LYS, I was greeted with flooded intersections everywhere. Two blocks from my house, I encountered this 2-foot geyser in my lane:
A block closer, and there was another, smaller one. (It’s in front of the cars at the light, or you’d be able to see it in the photo.)
My street was a half-block further, and had several police cars scattered nearby. Fortunately no geyser, but the intersection was flooded to about 1 foot deep.
I don’t know if it was just flash flooding from the storm, or if there was a broken water main, but there sure was a lot of water. Fortunately, the street has a slight rise before you get to my house, so we were out of the flood.
