Wet suit (check) Goggles (check) flippers (check) air tank (check) what you get when a main waterline can't hold anymore water. I now have a house boat Iím dumping out the sand box so I can have beach front property too.

Looks like my lawn here in PA also. Spring rains= spring floods here.

Wait... you have a lawn in New York City?! Wowee! I lived in the village and the closest thing to a lawn I had was Washington Square Park.

Send some of that rain to El Paso Tx. No rain since Feb 2! We are so so dry. We have fire warnings everywhere!

in NYC I only have a fire escape. But there is a country/weekend house with a large yard that now looks like a small pond/lake!
