For weeks, we in the Ottawa area have been calling for rain. The thaw was quick and the ground was dry, making way for plenty of weeds.
This week, our calls were answered.
For the past three days, it has poured on our city. Buckets full.
But the nice thing is that when the rains subsided, the neighbourhood turned into a photographer's dream.
I shot these photos an hour before sunset on Wednesday, after the rains had turned my quiet street into a river. Luckily, there was no flooding.
