So Saturday I was looking on Craigslist for used arks (armored ones, of course). Sunday morning, the water was gone and things when right back to whatever passes for normal here.
In some areas, if never stopped. This nice White Linen art gallery event was less than two miles from me and it went on soon as the rain stopped.
White Linen art night defied the deluge
Full disclosure: I was supposed to be there. With Anastasia. Instead I was relegated to paddling the backwaters of the Congo. Sigh.
But come the next day, other than some garbage clean-up and a few soaked cars, it was almost as if a quarter of the city had never flooded.
And me and the dogs...
We went to an art gallery.
Then we watched street performers
And then we went to the bar where they got treats.
And it was like Saturday never happened. Except it did. And I blame the mayor who spent two million dollars taking down statues of war heroes just to make a national name for himself instead of using that money to fix our roads, hire more police and maybe even fix our drainage system.
Thanks to all those who expressed their concern.
