Absolutely Not Your Monkey

The weather had cleared by the time I got out of bed this morning, despite indications from the satellite picture that we were still well inside the typhoon. After lunch I went out to take a look and take some pictures now that the rain wasn’t coming down so hard. I found that the river was still quite high, although about a meter or so lower than it had been, as evidenced by the detrius stuck in some half-submerged playground equipment. More people were out and about, pointing at the river as it rushed by.

I walked down to the floodgates, where the water was still a roiling brown torrent. The riverside bicycle path below it was obliterated; it’s going to take a while before it gets cleaned up again. I’ve enjoyed these two unexpected days off, though I lost money because of it. Tomorrow it’s back to work. Also, I need to look for some new shoes, since I now know my current pair, which I bought on Thursday, February 07, 2002 (thanks to the wonder of archives) has finally lost their storm-defeating magic.
