I decided to take the regular route and the Logan viaduct, hoping that even if the road were underwater, the raised sidewalk would be passable, as the rain had been in abatement for a half hour or so. This proved to be the case; I may have been able to plow through the road, but I decided to take the high road. A cyclist approached from the opposite direction just as I got to the vegetative slime where clearly the sidewalk had been submerged. In deference to the slime and the narrow sidewalk, I commenced to dab my way through. "Bleccch!" I said. From the other rider, slightly cheerily: "Thank you for your kindness and courtesy in/for (?) safety."
I have no idea - but I reckon we both got where we were going ;)
