I hope you all fared well through the rains, if you were hit with any. Though my sump pump is pumping about once every two minutes, my house fared Ok; but downtown Ellicott City and surrounding parts of Howard County got hit hard and fast, as I'm sure you've heard. Screenshots from our local news video. What you see below is multi-lane Rt. 29, near Rt. 175, in Howard County. Northbound is dry and fine. Southbound, however, is flooded waist high. That is not supposed to be a river. That is a highway.
And the rains continue. Small break for a few days; but, wow, did we get absolutely hammered Friday night. Two days later, and most of the back roads around me continue covered in spots with flowing water.
With all the rocks, water and mud, it'll be awhile before I can take the Elise on some of my favorite local back roads.
It always amazes me how the weather "knows" that a new season has begun. As if a switch were activated, today was breezy and cool and expressed a nice drop in humidity. After a full day of overdue lawn chores and with, finally, no rain, I busted out the Elise and went for a nice drive. Lots of other toys out there, too, this evening!
