And the Rains Came Down

Lonely Tulip in my Garden
It rained yesterday. All day. I know the old saying about April showers bringing May flowers, but yesterday's rain was excessive.

The streams turned into rivers. My yard became waterlogged. 

Someone said that trillions of gallons of water was falling from the sky across the eastern part of the country. I guess we won't have a water shortage this summer.

The Orioles game was rained out for the second night in a row and there will be a doubleheader today. But it is supposed to rain again this evening! Ugh!

I had a dental cleaning yesterday and I could hear the rain hitting the building and the windows over the sounds of the dental equipment being used to polish my teeth.

The roads were covered with water and to make matters worse, a road collapsed in a Baltimore neighborhood that swallowed up  a few cars. 

And still the rains came down.

At one point I asked someone where I had left my ark, and they responded did I mean parked my ark? I said, no, berthed or tied up my ark. 

By the way, what's a cubit? It is equivalent to the length of the forearm from the elbow to the tip of the middle finger. 

I have no idea what I am going to face on my morning commute--there are certainly roads and bridges washed out or unsafe. I probable should watch the news for a recap.
