The Flood — Part 2

The flood waters have receded, the streets are more or less dry and we are–dare I say it?– almost finished the cleanup.

BUT take a look at this.

 

 

Yep, that’s the drainage canal. Just how much water can it hold? Enough to prevent another flood during the next one or two or ten storms predicted for the area in the coming weeks?

NO, there are no signs of backhoes or excavators coming to the rescue.

So we wait with fingers crossed for the end of hurricane season.

Culture shapes play — roadside shrines of Mexico

The munchkin and her friend built an elaborate shrine in the garden for a couple of dead snails.

Here’s one at the site of a bus crash that resulted in multiple deaths.

 

Now we know what inspired the girls.
