After more than 72 hours of rain, the ground is absolutely saturated with water, and most of the pathways around campus are closer to waterways than pathways. (One severe storm hit MCLA pretty badly.) This morning, after several hours of particularly heavy rain, the dining hall in Mission Park flooded. Nobody knows when Mission will be up and running again–signs posted by Dining Services say “Due to serious flooding, Mission is closed until further notice”–but the pumps and fans are running, and all the standing water is gone, so hopefully things will be back to normal soon.
