Still Here

So we’re experiencing the worst flooding here in ~90 years and our town is cut off in every direction from the rest of the world. Dan made it home before the flooding and our house is up high enough that we always fare okay. There’s just no new mail, no garbage pickup, no grocery deliveries to the stores and no easy access to hospital care. So many people have lost their homes throughout the state and as the waters recede, there is damage to our major routes out of town, so it may be several days until people can get in or out safely.

Luckily Dan is stuck on this side of the water and is able to work from home fairly effectively. And although Laylee thinks she’s broken her leg and is begging me to take her to Children’s Hospital for X-rays, I’m fairly certain that the Arnica I just rubbed on it has done the trick. With the way she’s prancing around the living room, I think I’ll hold off on calling the fire station emergency evac boats into immediate action.

    Every time they mention Seattle on the news I think of you (and cringe! Ick! Hope it clears up soon!)

    What is it with newspapers being so selective in their reporting? I had no idea you guys were flooded out there!

    I was thinking about you guys and wondering how you are. Apparently the flooding is starting to go down, hopefully you’ll be free again soon. Stay safe!

    Eye of the Panther…Love it! That Laylee, she’s such a smartie. 🙂

  5. Glad that all of you are well and that you haven’t had to put your oars to water quite as yet. Here’s to hoping that y’all continue to be safe and dry.

    What a confident kiddo! I’m impressed with your eye of a panther and not freaking out when the school misplaced your daughter.

  7. Wow! You all have had an insane weather year!! Hope Mother Nature gets her act together soon. Loved your Parenting post, by the way. I completely would have been freaking out. Guess I don’t have the Eye!
