Recalling the events of exactly twelve weeks ago, I discovered some video footage taken by an intrepid wanderer during the height of the floods. This video is of our street when the flood waters were at their peak. I’m so glad our flat, though a ground floor colony flat, was at the higher end of the street.
What the video really brings back is the feel of that morning. The ceaseless rain. The unending drabness of the sky, and the weird silence as everyone just waited for the outcome, or for someone to come and take care of the situation. Everything’s so normal again around here now, it’s mightily surreal watching this video.
