Like the title say, rochester pretty much had a huge water problem due to a storm. I tried to go home for lunch and it took me 1.5 hours to go 7 miles. The main road out of pittsford where I work had 5 inches on the high parts and intersections had 1-1.5 feet. One intersection I went through, waves from the other cars were going OVER my hood. Took several detours about flooded intersections and was forced to go through some others. The highway was even flooded at underpasses. I had to drive through a median, across a grassy area by an off ramp, over a side walk just big enough for my girl and finally through the MIDDLE of the park by me just to get home. Only casualty of the drive do far is the rear bumper cover, which got pulled back from the force of the water and detached the little black piece under it. Brakes are iffy right now.
I get home and the street is flooded right by my house. Walk in and check the leak in the walls that was there from last time and it wasn't leaking... good. Then went to the basement.
There was 4 inches of water in it when I got there. Once the neighbors got the street to drain and I got down there, I noticed the high water mark on the back of the basement as 10 inches and the front at just over 12. Thankfully I had moved the rabbits to the garage cause the sides of their cages were only 5 inches and I am not sure how well they swim. Needlesstosay, Some of our stuff was in plastic bins and fine, but there were 5 computers, a laptop, CB and Scanner, and all the parts I took off MY car including the center console.
Well, I am not hugely happy at the moment. Rain and thunder storms are predicted for the rest of today and tomorrow morning, so it'll be a treat.
