Streets got flooded for no apparent reason last year.... apparently a bit of high tide + rain = New Orleans style flooding. I drive down Alton and over Macarthur every day so when it was bad I just worked from home.

I was out of town on business for the week when it happened so I missed it. Lots of totaled cars as a result of the floods, many that were just parked on the side of the road and in parking garages.
