Well, whattaya know …. I only slept from about 10:00 last night until just right at 2:00 this morning.
I am still at my daughter’s house, we will have lights. And food. The water is so high around everywhere that we could not easily leave if we wanted to. The trucks are high enough to maybe get out of the driveway, but there is no telling what roads may or may not be passable.
I am very fortunate that I’m not sitting alone at my home. As of yesterday, the water had not risen up into the trailer. My landlady got this picture yesterday around mid-day (click to enlarge) and said there was still electricity there.
But I’m not there, of course, and that was yesterday. The water around here (at my daughter’s home) is still rising, a couple feet deep, but the house is high up so there’s no water in the house, and I’m typing with the lights on so we have power to the main house.
If you are viewing the news on television, you are seeing some horrific images of other people with problems much larger than my own. For me, I just have to wait for the water to go down, then find a way to get back home, and THEN I can assess the actual personal impact.
In the short term here, it seems the water has risen high enough to shut off the well pump. But there’s loads of water around for pulling up buckets for toilet flushings. 🙂
Meanwhile, I’ve been working on the Rustic Shawl, and after completing an entire band in my intended color sequence I discovered I used the WRONG COLOR for 24 rows. Well, phooey! Nope, not gonna rip it out and fix it. Haven’t the time or patience for that. We’ll just pretend it really IS “rustic” and pretend I meant to do it that way. Hahaha. I only brought the one project, so we’ll just deal with it, right?
