Gushing About L.A.
I take a walk every day, my morning constitutional. And most days it's pretty basic. Low-key, a nice stroll, On occasion, some days are a bit more lively than others. Today, I turned the corner and headed to a grocery store a few blocks down.
It wasn't a good day for that car which crashed into the fire hydrant.
It also ended up worse for the neighborhood than appears in the picture. I took a detour to get past the congestion, and it turned out that there was a very long lake of water streaming down the gutters for many blocks south, hard to get past, too wide to leap over -- and even the next block over, a second, long lake. Eventually I gave up any expectation of staying dry unless I wanted to skip the shopping part of the jaunt. I tried a leap, but it was to no avail. I only got about two-thirds of the way across, even with a running start.
Happily, I've mostly dry by now. I can't say the same for the driver and his car. Also happily there doesn't appear to be any notable injury. Just a lot of water. And car repairs in the offing.
