The rain was coming down insanely hard, so I decided that I wanted to walk out to the post box just because it was such a down pour. As I walked I saw every walk way with stairs had been turned into a water fall, the street was now a river and people's back yards were now lakes. Lowell was running so fast I was afraid to cross. It was flowing up over the curb and in some places was calf deep. I went home and got my camera, but by then the waters had already receded. These are the images I got after the water had had a chance to calm down:

Hmm; I hope my contractor got tarps up on the wall that no longer exists in time...

I drove to the hardware store to get hoses to siphon the lake off my roof, and I got to see the intersection of Elm and Somerville flooded deeper than I'll drive my car through, and the intersection of Cedar and Summer blocked by fire trucks. The roof drain's unclogged now and the bathroom ceiling stopped dripping, so maybe the many-decades-old wiring won't start a fire! (That's my guess as to what happened at Cedar and Summer.)
