Through the Flood

This morning as I left for services I was a bit worried about how the roads would be. Would I see some flooding? Would I have to take a detour?

I am glad that I wasn’t driving through here during the storm yesterday. Several inches of rain fell yesterday, and coupled with high winds it would have been dangerous.
