Here is a photo of the Belt Parkway. It is completely flooded and normally the water level is about 10-15 feet below the shore line. Now, the freeway is completely under water and I can hear ocean waves crashing near my window. I must say that overall, it is a very pleasant change when compared to honking and speeding cars, and especially thundering motorcycles.
My main concern is whether the water will recede enough so that I can drive on this freeway to work tomorrow.
