Ha yea.. I dont think that crossed everyones mind. There were pics of people swimming and having fun in the water.. I guess the forgot that a lot of the flooding was overflows surging out of the sewers... Sure, its diluted, but im sure there were areas where it was quite concentrated.

My family is spending a long vacation on Maui where the weather is ridiculously perfect, but this news certainly snapped me back to reality and thoughts about our house in Bloor West Village. Seems just so unreal--some of those pictures are nearly beyond belief. Hope everyone stays safe.

Hey guys. Did Richmond Hill get hit at all? My parents are out of town and they are wondering about their house.

Wrong. Home insurance typically excludes flooding. Wind, Hail, lightning and other natural disasters are covered under most home owners policies. Sewer backup(which is what most people are having) is even covered if you purchase an additional rider.

This guys car will be probably be covered under his comprehensive coverage portion of his auto policy.

Hope everyone is safe and make sure you get everything dry ASAP.

I definitely heard on the radio that RH got hit. Not too sure to what extent, but it did get the rain.

Imagine being stuck on a Go Train for hours on end, having not eaten since lunch, with water at your ankles and realizing it's only Monday and you have four more days of work left? Brutal.

Speaking of 1st world problems, people who take up spots on a crowded elevator and get off on the 2nd floor are sociopaths who belong in an institution.

Unless of course they can't walk up stairs.

We should say people who are able should take the stair if they are ... 4 floors or less? 5 floors?

I think the people who are going to the 17th. floor of a 20 story building and stand in the doorway are worse. Or people who get on when the doors open without letting people off. Or people who stand 2 abreast on an escalator. You stand single file on the right, so people can pass on the left. Some really clueless people, but then some people are country folk and haven't learned etiquette.

This is me when the elevator stops at 2nd floor and the person rides one floor.

Have you ever tried walking up/down 4 flights of stairs at once?! It's exhausting!

There were heavy rains in Richmond Hill and Woodbridge but no lingering flooding as far as I know.

WOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



As for the flood. My girlfriend is at Parklawn and Lakeshore. no power until 2am last night, somehow lucked out and her garage didn't flood. She is on P3 (lowest point in the building) with a brand new car, not even a week old. Power is still out in her neighborhood. She also had no cell service until about 9:30PM, which had me worried when I couldn't get a hold of her.

A friend of mind in Distillery had her whole garage flood, car is probably a write off.

Some offices south of the airport flooded as well.

Just moved out three months ago. My entire place would have been flooded.

I've never agreed more with a statement in my life.

In my office, sometimes people wait up to 5 minutes for an elevator to arrive (only 3 out of 6 are working right now but that's another story) and they just get off on the second floor.

I'd like to see you get this fat and still climb stairs, that's why! Don't be hating on us, we're people too. Sad, sad people....but people dammit!



No but seriously I'm super lazy and even I don't do that.


Hope everyone in Toronto is hanging in there. It's pretty darn wet down here the nether regions of Ontario but no flooding...apparent hailstorm tonight might screw things up though.

THIS! Especially where I work there's escalators that go up to the third floor, yet people still decide they would rather take the elevators to either floor 2 or 3.
