The rains continue. Tormenta electrica sin fin. The drainage canals along the main road at the end of our street are totally overflowed. And apparently Uruguayans are no better than Los Angeles residents at driving in rain.
Upon quick return from a truncated dog walk, this is the vista from under the relative shelter of the awning above our doorway.
Here’s what it looked like from that flooded corner back towards our casita.
Our entrance is one of those on the side of the building, on the dirt road side street. There are two larger 2-bedroom casitas on the front of this 5-unit building, you can see one of them with a green bench on the far right of the picture. They are a bit lower and the waters are creeping up onto that lawn. I’m afraid our neighbor Doña Graciela may have some water flowing in under the door before the day is out, if we don’t get a break soon. A longer break than these 10-20 minute bands of slight clearing before the next wave of the tormenta blows through.
