I was an idiot and thought the water wasn't as high as it was (it wasn't that high yet), so I drove in - lucky for me it wasn't quite that high yet. It did get higher after that one, and that one was about half hour after I pulled in the lot. There were people after me who had it worse but still made it (one barely). Good news is that they fixed the drains and it has finally cleared out, and it is barely raining now. Hopefully it stays that way! (If you haven't seen the picture it is below). If it was that still this afternoon I had the option of getting picked up by Brad in his truck - much higher than the Mini!
(They had a police car blocking it for a while but then the water got too high and they had to have a tow truck get it out!)
