Torrential downpour = street flood

First time in 10 years that we experienced something like this!

Left the house at noon to go have lunch with Big Daddy, sun was shining, and the windows wide open.
Driving home 2 hours later, in a torrential downpour complete with thunder and lightening.
Marlo's bed and toys in our room were soaked but other than that, all was well.  Thank god.

Garbage day delayed one day but there's always one on the street who doesn't pay attention, therefore, we having floating rubbish as well.

Notice how the drains are so much higher than the street.  The guy who designed the street, can't say he graduated top of his class can we?

Oh here comes someone.  Good thing I'm hiding in the garage, wouldn't want them to see me taking photos!!   

Oh good lord, it's Fred, our neighbour!!!  Look how high the water is!!!

Here comes the 'Princess and daughter Princess' (was that mean?).  We'll save that story for another day.  Can you guess what happens next?

Yep, you guessed it!  Car stalls in the middle of the 'lake'.  And....she opens her doors.....

Two hours later the flood has decipitated and the BMW removed.
