A floating home (well, one that is supposed to float) was looking good to many Maryland residents during the past 48 hours. We have nothing to complain about in comparison to the Florida panhandle but the rain started Tuesday night and didn't stop until early Thursday morning. I'm not talking about nice, gentle rain. No, this was buckets and buckets for hours and hours.
Parts of Baltimore didn't fare so well in the storm. If you haven't already heard, a landslide ate a few cars. Boating friends without floating docks shared photos of underwater docks.

The city is busy cleaning the Inner Harbor, the main tourist hub.
|Normally people can walk out on dry land to those pylons.|
|Parts of the Inner Harbor Promenade are closed as they work on clearing debris.|
|This was taken Thursday morning. I imagine these cleats along the Inner Harbor wall were underwater sometime Wednesday.|

|The city trash boats will come by and pick up as much as possible. This particular one was a bit of a tourist attraction this morning.|
