Ernesto lingers for another rainy day in Old Town, and sidewalks are empty except for the most intrepid. A couple of businesses at the foot of King Street had nearly two feet of water creep in at high tide around 2 a.m. and had to do some mopping up. The good news is that the worst of the storm has now passed, and the Potomac has returned to its banks.
It was raining pretty steadily when I snapped this shot. While I was waiting like a hunter for a deer for a colorful umbrella to go by, I discovered that my rain jacket was water resistant and not waterproof. I would have stayed out shooting longer, but I was getting pretty soaked. Time to invest in a good raincoat, because I was like a kid having fun playing out in the rain and didn’t wanna go back inside!
