Today I’m thankful for storm sewers.
I get spooked when it rains hard and long enough for the streets to back up with water. I’ve lost one vehicle to a flood. Another was repairable but the costs were high and the car always smelled like fish.
It’s still dark when I leave for work. We had a recent gully washer. Between the darkness and sheets of rain I was not happy. I just wanted to get to work. The city recently upgraded the storm sewer system and for once, the streets didn’t flood!
