Good Sunday morning!
Part of adding simplicity to life is just by practicing gratitude. And this weekend I’ve had a lot to be thankful for. First of all, I am really, really thankful that my car did not flood! When I walked out of the Beckerman Center at the University of New Haven, after attending a national karate competition, this is what I saw:
Ai-yai-yai! Thank goodness my car was not down there. When I first arrived it was rather late, so I only found one open parking space, and it was up on a hill. I feel so bad for these people though. And this was after the rain had stopped for a bit, so who knows how high the water actually got.
Here’s a view from another angle:
It would have been particularly bad for me, because I was driving not the old subaru with about 150,000 miles on it, but a brand new Honda Fit, barely out of its break-in period with 700 miles on it. So I learned a valuable lesson: if you have a new car (or any car), and it’s threatening to downpour, park on the high ground! You’ll be thankful.
