help ease the flood

If you have basic garden tools like a steel-bladed shovel or a hoe, please consider spending some time tonight or tomorrow chopping ice away from the street drain closest to your house. The street flooding we're having now will only get worse with tomorrow's rain unless drains are cleared of ice and snow and water can drain away.

I just came in after spending a while chopping away. If you can't completely clear a drain, even making a path from open water towards the drain and chopping away some of the ice from on top of the drain will help. If all that standing water freezes when it gets cold again, we'll need ice skates to get around.
