Hurricane (or Whatever) Hermine

It's been raining for more than 24 hours. Hard. It's unreal.

At one point last night the back yard had 4-5" of standing water. I realized that it wasn't draining because R left the 2' tall silt fence (pictured below) in place to prevent runoff until we've landscaped -- and it was indeed preventing runoff. I had to go outside (in my fantastic whale galoshes) and an umbrella and cut holes in the fabric with a utility knife so the water would drain.

Needless to say, it was treacherous, but I prevailed.

Maybe I should wear my whale galoshes to work today...?
