Providence, mostly (I think) Atwells Avenue. Annoying bad panning is annoying:



Warwick Mall, about ten minutes away from me:



Local flooding in Cranston and Warwick:



Things are a little better now (the sun is out, yay!) but parts of 95 and other places are still closed. And I really don't know when the Warwick Mall will be able to reopen.

I was thinking about you when I watched the news. How are you yourself doing? Everything dry in your house?

Right now I'm living on the third floor of an apartment building so we're okay. We've been told not to flush or shower unless we have to, but otherwise I haven't had a problem. I was on Block Island for the majority of the rainstorm, which didn't really have a problem at all because there aren't any rivers there.

There was a lot of flooding no more than two miles away, though. I've been very lucky.

Also, apparently Janet Napolitano is coming to RI to look at the damage.

Nature is awesome, in the literal, original sense.

Wow, I used to live there! I worked in the mall and lived in Warwick. Years later I lived in Providence. That was all pretty impressive and scary.

I'm glad you're ok!

\o/ Oh no! This boggles my mind. I hope you're high and dry and safe!

Yep. Fortunately I'm both. And it's so NICE out today.

Holy cow. O.O It was wet here in P'ton, but nothing remotely like that! I'm glad your place stayed dry, though, and I hope the inconveniences re: showering/flushing will be cleared up quickly.

It's much better today. I'm pretty sure most of the roads are open, and if the sewer treatment plant isn't up and running now, it should be soon.

Connecticut didn't get hit quite as hard as Rhode Island, but both Norwich and Stonington were declared disaster areas.

I hope you will be able to shower and flush soon.

The only major problem I had at my place is that the basement in our building had major flooding so we had to turn off the hot water heater for a day.

There wasn't an all-out ban on showering and flushing, just a "don't do it if you don't have to" thing. I think one shower in four days is keeping with the program, but tomorrow I have to work, so yeah. That's me having to so I can keep my job. :)
