Well, it is coming down pretty good now. For the last week I've been wondering when it'd finally hit and... here ya go.

(that is the same neighborhood I met Joo in)

Anyways, here is another ODD STORY

June 28, 2005 ㅡ Police and the Korea Electric Power Corporation are
investigating how a manhole cover electrocuted at least three people Sunday
night after torrential rains, causing the death of a teenage girl. The girl died
Sunday from electric shock after she stepped on the manhole cover in Incheon.
Police and power officials said the cover somehow became charged with 227 volts
of electricity from a faulty cable.Witnesses said the 16-year-old girl collapsed
around 9:25 pm while standing on the metal cover. A passer-by attempted to help
the girl to her feet, but was also shocked after touching her. The two were sent
to a nearby hospital where the girl died from her injuries.Twenty minutes prior
to the girl's accident, an 18-year-old man was also electrocuted while standing on the same manhole cover
. He is currently in critical condition and
hospitalized in an intensive care unit, according to hospital and police
sources.Heavy rain throughout the country caused structural damage to homes. It
caused cracks on a 3.5-meter-high (10.5 foot) embankment next to the Mido
apartment building yesterday morning in Goyang city, Gyeonggi province. The wall
was reinforced in the afternoon.
