The Results of Falling Water

It rained heavily yesterday morning. By shortly after noon the water had stopped falling and the clouds had lost their angry darkness. By one o’clock the water had worked its way through the ground and was seeping up into the basement. It wasn’t much, not enough to do more than pool up and consider following gravity’s lead across the floor. That consideration was never acted upon. Not enough water came through to get the necessary mob momentum. By this morning it was mostly dry again.
