I rode passed Irene Country club, the only way you could tell it was a golf course was that the water had flags sticking out.

Thats gonna cost big bucks to fix.

wow that's hectic - took a detour through Midrand this morning in an attempt to avoid traffic - got to a point where I saw taxis' turning back - one road was totally flooded over and water was gushing out - i thought it must have been a river or a stormwater drain - it turned out to be a house - some serious flooding in the low lying agricultural areas.

the insurance companies are going to have a tough time, and the alternate routes are a mess with pot holes.

where, that would just be the cherry on top if we had rolling power outages as well. Hope not.
but it's quite a scary wake up call to how dodge our infrastructure is. Yea we can't predict crazy heavy storms but the road planning along with cleaning up stormwater drains and the litter is a big problem.
