I jotted notes in my margins today to tell you all the marvelous things that are happening at school, but that's all been trumped by... EVACUATION!
Our apartment flooded. Heck, the whole damn region flooded. The amount of rain here is unreal, I've never seen anything like it, it's kind of terrifying.
I'm incredibly grateful to be safe, and accompanied by our (completely traumatized) cats. Also grateful for Dave's hotel discounts!
I often sing old gospel songs when I'm scared (well, not when taking tests or interviewing... more like when driving, or having an MRI). On the half hour drive to Harrisburg, I sang, and three cats joined me. It's hard to say which of us sounded worst. Also: "streams of mercy, never ceasing" has a whole new meaning for me now.
Dave's stranded in NYC. Yet again, a natural disaster has kept him from getting home. Poor guy-- I think it's hard to be helpless while your wife is dealing with an emergency.
But seriously, y'all: NEW COUCH! Right? This totally justifies it.
Prayers for everyone here, please. The woman who checked me in tonight said that they're taking people out of her neighborhood by boat.
