And the skies became black

Update:
They’ve issued a “flood advisory”. What does that translate into for Hoboken?

UNTIL 945 PM EDT…

* AN AREA OF MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN…WITH EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS…WILL WORK NORTHEAST FROM CENTRAL NEW JERSEY AND ACROSS THE AREA THROUGH 9 PM. BETWEEN 1/2 AND ONE INCH OF RAIN HAS FALLEN ACROSS THE AREA THIS AFTERNOON…WITH ANOTHER INCH POSSIBLE THROUGH THIS EVENING.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE ROADWAY. MOST FLOODING DEATHS OCCUR IN AUTOMOBILES. TURN AROUND AND FIND ANOTHER ROUTE.

BE ESPECIALLY CAUTIOUS AT NIGHT WHEN IT IS HARDER TO RECOGNIZE THE DANGERS OF FLOODS.

BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION IF THE FLOODING THREAT INCREASES…OR A WARNING IS ISSUED.

Nothing like a strong thunderstorm to cool things off!

I am guessing you knew it was time to move(or it) this time last month!!![/quote]

Thanks to the EAWS [Early Ark Warning System], I parked next to the OTHER river in town, where it apparently doesn’t flood?? Narrowly escaped the minor landslides and pier collapses also. 😛
