Our Lady Gate of Heaven: After the Storm, Summer 2008

Taken after a storm in the summer 2008. Before the bioswale was installed, the parking would be flooded for days after a big rain. The bioswale soaked up this rain (summer 2008) after one day.

    This is odd to me. I went to OLGH for 8 years. While there was always flooding in the neighborhood (I actually though the slag made the earth less able to accept the water). But the parking lot/playground was usually passable. I don't think I ever saw it this flooded. Basements always flooded, but the church never was flooded that I remember. Its ground was at about sea level I think.

    I hear the school is shut down.
