FrankenFlood

I've decided
I'm calling it
FrankenFlood.

Simcoe St and Front
(downtown)

Museum Subway Station

Queen's Park Subway Station

This is a highway.
Not a river.
Highway 427 and Burnhamthorpe


People were stuck on a GoTrain for hours.
They were finally retrieved by the marine unit around 1a.m.

It was a lot of rain.
126 mm which set records.
Our power was out for about 2 1/2 hours
and I realized that we are woefully unprepared for power outages.
(Now on the shopping list - batteries for the radio.)
We are lucky that we are on high ground
our basement didn't flood
and we had no damage that I can see.

I had been buying flowers at Home Depot just before the rain started.
Needless to say, they don't require watering.
