Rain

It's been raining like mad the last few hours at least, if not longer. And I don't know about right now, but when I was going from the bus to the FredMeyer's here, it was coming down by the scores* of bathtubfuls. There were not just streams in the roads, but full rivers. I had to walk half a block from the crosswalk to find somewhere narrow enough to ford the river. And the lakes forming were ginormous, too!

I tell you, if it rains much harder, the buses will have to activate their emergency pontoons. (I've never heard anything about Portland buses having emergency pontoons, but it is my headcanon that they have such things.)

* = A "score" is 20. So "scores" is "twenties." It's one of my favorite words. ("Four score" is 80.)
