On a walk, Sunday afternoon when it cleared up, we noticed a medium-sized tree fell on a pick-up truck parked on Fir (between Island and Holly). Later we saw the truck had been moved up the street, so apparently it wasn't damaged too much. The whole time we were walking the dog I was thinking about the trees around us wondering if any were about to come toppling over and remembering the couple in NYC who got crushed by a tree walking their dog after a storm. The ground out on Bay Farm was just swampy as could be by Sunday.

We saw the downed tree near San Antonio and the digging High Hoe that fell over in a mud pit at the old Boatworks/Collins demolition site

The casual carpool corner on Park Ave and Encinal was absolutely flooded this morning. It was a lake that spread around the corner. Only commuters wth long legs who could jump across the water could access the car if the driver didn't pull up the curb. And when they did, the tires were a good 6 inches deep. I was ready to bypass any driver that didn't pull up. Thankfully, our driver drove into the liquor store parking lot. And she said the flooding was worse yesterday. I wish I had taken a picture because I never saw the flooding so widespread. I certainly hope the city is able to clear out the drain today.
