It's worth noting that a group of the Irish cousins was meeting at an east side bar the night of the deluge and I decided not to join them because I'm not insane. Well, one of the Irish aunts got stuck after leaving the bar.
She had to hitchhike home where AAA told her she had to go back to wait with her partially submerged vehicle.

She waited until 4 am, about 5 hours.

It's also worth noting that it's rumbling and raining right now, streets are still closed, city buses are still free and it's supposed to rain through Wednesday.
So far 160,000 sandbags have been filled and now we're afraid of trees. The older ones are in danger of being uprooted in high water areas and newscasters are asking the meteorologist what people on the east side should be looking out for. (The answer is rain.)
