It rained quite heavily this evening in the Lower Mainland and it led to flooding in many parts of Vancouver. I had to drive to dinner and it was torrential rain with low visibility in many parts of my drive.
Once on foot, I was amazed at the amount of leaves in the street and on the sidewalk. There was a thick, mushy layer of autumn leaves just padding the ground. This probably explains all the blocked drains leading to the flooding. The rain is supposed to stop overnight but showers will return for Monday. The forecast is for rain and showers for the next ten days!
