The flash flooding there looks too deep to ride through, hope everyone makes it home OK.

Drove to work today. It was raining 2” per hour for a couple hours during the morning rush hour. Arm got soaked reaching out the window to open the parking garage with a pass card. Most everything drained, but still closures now. I was next to a motorcycle rider on the highway for a bit. Hope the guy had the sense to pull off. Huge plumes of spray coming off vehicles made riding a motorcycle extremely dangerous.

I usually ride through the area by Fletcher’s Cove and Canal Road, which is mentioned in this article.
