prediction: more flooding

Seems like we have some wet weather in store for the next few days.

Translation: more Hoboken flooding.

If you happen to live near some flood-prone area in town, please send pictures in! Will post them next week.
We can build a collage of our lovely town and send it to the Mayor!

oh my god. i drove through 2nd and clinton. the water was coming up to the beginning of the front door of some of the buildings. The only reason I made it through is because I have an SUV. I feel bad for people that have low cars.They also blocked off 9th street between monroe and madison.This is why we need to stop building.We need to fix the drainage systems in this town before we build more condos. i have lived here for 5 years. It has gotten really really really bad.

I just drove into Hoboken from upstate NY. There has got to be 3 feet of water at the bottom of the Park Avenue bridge in Weehawken (next to the Exxon). And police blocked off the road under the helix (coming from 495 exit to get to Park Avenue bridge) b/c of flooding. Eveyone was diverted down towards Edgewater. Unbelievable!!!
