Outside: Deteriorating. Inside: Improving.

Well, blogmates, the university here has just closed – a friend writes she has to figure out how to get home, because roads are flooded.

This is in town, mind you.  We have storm-drains and civil engineers.  Out on the country?  I hate to think.

Well, on second thought, I checked the National Weather Service.  Here’s what they say:  “Civil Emergency.  Catastrophic flooding is occurring across much of the county.  Numerous water rescues are in progress.  Emergency management is discouraging travel.”

You think?

You heard the expression “Cod willing and the creek don’t rise”?  Folks round here say that a lot.  Just citing a different Deity than Cod.  Not everybody is obsessed with cats, I realize.

Indoors, Bugs has gone from hunkered-down war-mode to –

What, me worry?

Just in case the waters rise this high.  You can’t be too careful.

Takes a lot out of a guy, this nonchalance-in-the-face-of-flooding thing.

P.S.:  The next day, a friend writes that after a week of steady but moderate rain, we got ten inches this day.  I wonder how much snow ten inches of rain would have been.  This friend was out on the roads, and his description of scenes I know well boggles the imagination.

About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.

    I’m sure Bugs will share the shelf if the time comes… but hopefully all will be well and the waters will subside. Hang in there!

    Both of us perched up there. What a thought.

    Well, another two days of this is predicted . . . .

    Ugh, good luck with the flood waters! I hope that they start receding soon… It sounds like you have the right idea in staying put.

      Thank you. But I can’t really take credit for the right idea. I was all set to go to drum class, until the e-mail cancelling came through. Even then, I was pouting. NOW I’m glad.
