Yesterday it started raining in the wee hours of the morning until the afternoon. Apparently that’s enough to flood streets, cause tons of accidents and also cause erosion of the sorts that caused a large boulder to roll down into a person’s house. It was fairly heavy rain, but it was hardly the biggest storm I’ve ever experienced.

We also found out why there was a very old ratty piece of duct tape on a window above our living room sofa when it started dripping water. The previous tenant clearly did not realize that one of the few things duct tape cannot do is seal ducts or windows from water.
