The Rain at the Train Drains, Mainly

DaveSchmidt

Unless you’re wearing waterproof boots or don’t mind getting your feet wet, the crossing behind Village Coffee is a better bet at the moment. (You’d figure this out yourself, but posting here in case you’re rushing to catch a train from the Village side and don’t expect a detour.)

It never used to flood before they tore down the post office.

Yes. But they don't handle a couple of inches per hour of rain. When the rain stops the water recedes.

You know it has been my experience twice now that abnormally heavy rains defeat most barriers.

The village coffee building is composed of brick.......or something approximating it

Twice now over the years we have had rainstorms so strong that the rain practically hit the building side ways

This caused the water to penetrate all outer and inner layers of my front room and leave water stains on the

walls. A once every bunch of years occurrence but still no fun.  Luckily I like the paintings of Jackson Pollock

I’m still in the city and can’t confirm, but jamie’s post indicates the splishing has passed.

Shut up with your revisionist liberal agenda history.  Back when REAL men like George W ran this country there wasn't a single drop of water in that tunnel.  True story.  Every word.
