Last Sunday

This happened a little while ago - but it's still pretty remarkable. We got home from my cousin's wedding (where there was a score of pro AHLers in attendance, which was cool) just in time for a pretty heavy downpour.

What I hadn't noticed about our front yard before was that in times of heavy rain, the storm drain can't keep up with the water. Our neighbour said that there's a natural flood plain that pours through their back yard and down toward a reservoir in the yard behind us.

This is pretty intense - well over the curb height. I waded out into it to see if the drain was blocked, but it wasn't - just totally overwhelmed.
