Weekly Capsule 41.3: One Of Those DaysPosted: October 15, 2015 | |
You wouldn’t know it looking at these photos, but it rained pretty heavily just that morning (I took the photos in the afternoon, after I got home from work). So heavily, in fact, that it pretty much threw half the city into chaos – there was a 2-mile long traffic jam on one of our thoroughfares because everywhere else is flooded. It wreaked havoc on my day, too. First of all, I couldn’t bike in such heavy rain, so I had to hitch a ride with my dad. Then, when I got to work, I found out our classroom was flooded from a leaky roof, so I had to gather my students into the teacher’s lounge. I was going to show a movie but the TV in the teacher’s lounge was not working, so I had to let them go early. Finally, because I didn’t bike, I had to take the bus home, and I’m telling you, taking the bus during rush hour from a stop in front of three big universities is no fun.
Back in LA I used to scoff at people for freaking out over a bit of rain, but now I know why.
