Round & Round & Round She Goes (147/365)

"Each makes this cosmos and its construction the pivot of his emotional life, in order to find in this way peace and security which he can not find in the narrow whirlpool of personal experience."

Albert Einstein (German born American Physicist who developed the special and general theories of relativity. Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921. 1879-1955)

TIME:  6:44 PM
PLACE: The alley
SUBJECT:  Storm sewer whirlpool

We had some sun most of the day, but late this afternoon, the rain moved back in.  MonkeyBoy's 6:00pm baseball game was canceled.  About 6:30pm we had a massive downpour with thunder and lightning.  It rained so much that it overtaxed our city's storm sewers and the alley behind our house temporarily flooded.  This is a rare occurrence, I think this has happened only about 4 or 5 times since I moved here in 1993.  This whirlpool appeared as the water was beginning to flow into the storm sewer.  I give credit to HandsomeHusband as he pointed out this photo opportunity to me...what a guy!
