Anybody Got An Ark?

Tropical Storm Fay paid a lengthy visit to Tallahassee this weekend, and apparently enjoyed Lake Ella so much that she thought she'd help its banks overflow into the cottage businesses that surround it! Below are some pictures I took standing in the dry portion of the Black Dog Cafe's parking lot. Believe it, or not, there are normally sidewalks, picnic tables, benches....

Above: Head Over Heels Dance Wear is now dripping underwater...

Dead End is right! Few of the streets around this mid-town spot are passable.

Umm....what happened to the sidewalk? Oh, yeah: it's by the fence posts with the floating trash can!
And some people just want their privacy. Nobody's gonna fight her for a seat on this bench behind the Black Dog!

For the record: my house and neighborhood got through this storm in one piece. Many others did not. There were at least 2,000 city utility customers without power, and there are several streets that remain closed. Send us your best energy....and maybe some towels, too!

My God, I hope that Head Over Heels hasn't been totally ruined. I am mortified. I guess that all you can do is wait until it dries up.
