Such a dreary sight to see, but it gets worse. Yes, the house across the street was reflected in the water the other day. But the water didn't go away. Our corner won't have storm drains until later this year. So, the water can't go away. Night comes, with temperatures below freezing, and the water becomes ice.
Then, large vehicles drive on the icy street, and the ice gets crushed into ridges and depressions. If it doesn't melt during the day, it re-freezes overnight, and the ridges become permanent. Smaller vehicles do not navigate it happily, but they navigate it with a crunching noise that always gets my attention.

Please note: you might see this before it shows up on Weekend Reflections because there seems to be a problem of some sort over there. I'll try their link again in the morning.
