A terrific thunderstorm drenched New York City last night. Within minutes, the streets were flooded with more than an inch of rain. I was at our workshop with a bunch of friends. It was going to be greatest night yet! Beer was overflowing, Alex, Paul and Jakob were building bookshelves, Jessica and I were working on my furniture project, and Leslie and Carolyn were drinking on the stoop listening to the rain through the open door. All of a sudden, one of the girl shrieked and pointed to a stream of water that started to flow out from the bathroom. It quickly picked up intensity and was soon gushing, so much that is sounded like a creek. The shower drain was spewing! We picked everything we could off the floor, as fast as we could, and then shut off the electricity. At the end of the night, the entire floor of our space was left covered in nearly 2 inches of sewage water!
