Flash Flood - Inundacion en Palermo
It started raining right at the end of classes Monday night (15-Feb-2010) and by the time we got a mile from home we were blocked by thigh deep water in every direction. After 4 attempts in different directions and one moderate electrocution, we finally took refuge at the 9th floor apartment of a friend of ours. At about 1 AM we the water had receded enough to slough home in only ankle and calf-deep water (but we did get to "rescue" 3 British girls before finally making it home). All in all... it was a fun adventure!
