*coughCLIMATECHANGEcough* - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
And this is yesterday's view of the spot where I saw the mink on Monday:


For those of you who have been following along, that's our second 100-year flood in the last five years. I'm on what passes for high ground when the gutters aren't blocked, but, yeeeeah, just as happy not to have a nice house down in the flood-plain... (Such as the reference-house for Sandra and David's place, which is one of many that are basically in the middle of the river right now. Forget the carpets, these people are going to be lucky their basements aren't full of dead fish when/if the water recedes...)

There's a TC Boyle novel about life in 100 years, where people are regularly living active lives until they're 150, but the world is an unremitting pile of hostile weather: floods, tornadoes, hurricanes. Creepy.

Yikes! Glad to hear that your building remains on high ground.

Holy crap. Are you in Albany Park? I know those neighborhoods flooded. Badly. Take care and try to stay unwaterlogged.
