In the town where I live, we normally get about 70mm (almost 3″) of rain in the month of June. This June, according to Environment Canada, we got 280mm (about 11″), no lie. So the ground’s already freakin’ saturated.
Last night, in a little more than two hours, we got (you sitting down?) another 71.2mm. So in, say, 150 minutes, we got thirty days’ worth of precipitation. Flood city. Apparently there were cars in the Wal*Mart lot that were windows-deep in water at one point. People kayaking down 34th Street. Seriously.
So it’s little surprise that I have water in my basement again.
At least my street has a fairly noticeable slope, so there wasn’t any kind of accumulation trying to sweep my car away. But still.
Pictures tomorrow. Honest.
(Bored? Sorry. I’m a Canadian. That means I talk about the weather. Incessantly. Eh.)
