Sorry, Charley

The hurricane is downgraded to a tropical storm, soon to become a tropical depression. (That term always cracks me up…I think of dudes in Hawaiian shirts, staring sadly into festive umbrella drinks and muttering to each other, “I don’t enjoy a colada the way I used to.”)
I cleared a storm drain of litter debris on my way back from coffee this morning — my neighborhood doesn’t have trash cans at each corner, and I’ll delve into that irritation in a later post — and was surprised at the sheer volume of water traveling into and underneath the drain, not least because I believe that volume remained steady all night. New Jersey’s going to be a water park by Columbus Day if this doesn’t let up.
