It is notwasn’t the biggest rain ever in Beijing, but it is was really the one which
that made gave the biggest trouble to Beijingers.
It is was a typical summer late afternoon—hot, humid, stuffy, and windless. After
we have had dinner at my mom’s home, my wife and I were got ready to drive
“I will rain soon” my mom said. “You can wait till the rain stops and go home.”
“It is not necessary.,” I said replied. “By this time, the rush hour is over.
FurthermoreBesides, the rain may last an hour, and I will get home within 30
“Ok, driving drive carefully, and remembering remember to phone me when you
get home,.” My my mom said.
“Ok,” I answered while we got into our car.
When we just pullAs we pulled off out of the community of my mommy mom’s
neighbourhood, the rain poured down. My mom’s home lies to the north of the
city, and mine to the south.
There is are several ways that lead to my home.
“Do you think whichWhich way is better?” I asked my wife.
“I think the west third circle road may be better,.” My my wife answered.
As we moved into the third circle road, my wife turned on the radio to spend the
time. “Is there some traffic information? It looks like a little bit jam on the road.” I
“Oh, I am not sure. Let me see,.” My my wife replied. After a few minutes she
said: “Ah, here we are.”
Just now then the voice in on the radio announced: “because Because of the
huge heavy rain, there is a serious problem for draining at the Liuli flyover of the
third road. One bus has been submerged under the water and the passengers
have had to swimming swim out from the water. And the west third circle road
has been totally blocked. Please select the other route.”
“My God, it is unbelievable! The passengers must swim out?” I said. “So, as the
west third circle road is not available, how can we go about itget there?
Before we got reached a conclusion, we knew that almost all main roads that
lead to our home have had been blocked by water. In the future next several
hours, all we can could do is following follow the traffic information to find an
available way to approach our home little by little--turning left and right
constantly, long time waiting at the intersections and looking at hundreds
passengers getting off the bus and selecting to walk home.
The rain lasted nearly four hours, and it took a longer time for police and workers
to recover reduce the traffic. After five hours driving, I arrived at my home at last
upon at nearly midnight.
I picked up the phone and said to my mom: “Hi, mom, do you know what? I have
been home right now.”I just got home!”
