Hurricane Bill paid a visit to Princeton this past Saturday afternoon in the form of a dense heavy rain. When rain falls on a town where the soil has already become saturated with water from previous rains, the whole town behaves as if it were paved with asphalt. With storm sewers overwhelmed by the runoff, the streets turned into rivers.
This particular river, flowing briskly along Ewing Street, decided to take a left turn into an apartment parking lot.
It then flowed under a wooden fence
and through some surprised homeowners' properties
before heading down Harrison Street to its intersection with Hamilton, where it served as a good traffic calming device.
