Succinctly yours: deluge
Every week, a photo is posted on the Grandma's Goulash blog, for the challenge called "Succinctly Yours" wherein Grandma asks us to use the photo as inspiration for a short story of 140 words or a short-short story of 140 characters including spaces and punctuation. Without seeing the photo, Grandma's daughter chooses the optional word of the week, which we can use, or not, as we like. This week's word is deluge.

Here is my submission of 136 characters, including spaces, punctuation, and the word of the week.
