Bad Drainage

Posted by Thoughts and Ramblings on Saturday, November 11, 2006

On Tuesday, I was sitting in my apartment, and I could hear the distinct sound of cars driving through water on the road. It was not supposed to rain so I looked outside and couldn’t see any water. I then went out to the parking lot, and I could see water flowing by very quickly about 3 inches deep. It was also very murky. The next day, I concluded that a water main broke somewhere nearby and that the water flowed down the street. In a great feat of design, the drainage seems to divert about 70% of the water flowing down the street into the parking lot to my apartment complex. Oh well, glad I didn’t have anywhere to go.

You can still see the sand and dirt that the water brought in covering everything today.
