Smart way to cope with summer floods
As the old saying goes, " When life gives you lemons, go waterskiing!"

"It was Toronto’s version of the perfect storm. And it came down during the height of the afternoon rush Friday. A torrential rain caused chaos across the city, as lightning, thunder, golf ball sized hail and high winds all converged on the G.T.A. to leave flooding in its wake.
In some areas, the rain fell so hard and so fast, sewers couldn’t contain all the water. Many drivers, heading home in the thick of it, actually had to be rescued from their vehicles after the roads turned into rivers."
