No, that isn’t a canal. It’s the street a block away from where I work after our daily thunderstorm. When I took the picture, I almost expected to see ducks floating by.
Also, this is a pretty standard sight in the New Orleans metro area, where there are parts of New Orleans proper that flood even worse during smaller storms. What a surprise I would be willing to leave a paradise like this for a week.
I love it here, but it will be nice to enjoy a real vacation.
Tonight, I’m pretending to pack for my trip. In reality, I’m watching Luther and reading The Magicians.
