Flood be gone

floodsmall.jpgThe other day I wrote about the big traffic pile up due to the rainstorm and flooding here.

I happened to take this pic with my cameraphone as I came home from getting groceries yesterday and saw the park by me flooded.

So today I decided that I’d take my digital cam over to the park to get some good pictures (since the cameraphone pics are so crappy).

I headed over there this morning, and guess what? The whole thing is cleared up! There’s not a drop of water to be found.

How did they manage to get that park drained of all that water? It was almost up to the tree tops for crying out loud.

So, no good pics for you. And yet, roads were still closed off in a few areas today. Apparently the rain actually broke down bridges and structures so we’ll be spending millions for repairs (“we” as in our collective city taxpayers).

    i think the last time the floods were this bad in toronto was back in 2000? i remember walking through one of the new malls uptown and seeing it pour rain inside to the horrible leaks.

    we’re definitely not use to such floods, are we?
