We have been cooped up in the house for the past three days. Since coming home from seeing The Dark Knight Rises on Monday, we’ve only stepped out onto the road yesterday morning, Wednesday. After lunch, torrential rain poured again and we got flooded in very quickly. In 15-20 minutes, water level was back to about 4 feet or so inside our compound.
Thank you so much to all who have left comments on the blog. I am safe. The flood has receded, but cleanup has not yet restarted. I guess people are still charging up and gearing for a full day ahead. Thank you also to all who have extended us help during the worst of the flood, and while we were cleaning up yesterday morning too.
I was posting flood pics on Instagram and Facebook the other day, but I’ve since stopped. It’s just happening all over again. You can view some of the pics over at The Newbie Photographer. We were cleaning up all the mud and debris away on Wednesday morning, only to see the creek overflow so quickly after lunch.
The good news is Mom and Dad finally made it home.

Although we didn’t lose electricity, cable and Internet, I hardly spent time on the computer. Any update I’ve done was through my phone, which also thankfully did not lose any service. So if I wasn’t trying to make conversation with whoever, and not moving around furniture, or cleaning up, what have I been doing?
I’ve been getting acquainted with Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander. Reading Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
On hindsight, I could have used the time to start redesigning and re-organizing my blog. I could be announcing an all new look for Verabear.Net next weekend, just as the site for Radial has been updated to look better. They’ve added nice icons that make navigating the site a breeze. I checked what Radial multipin connectors are, and the only think I can think of are the multi-head pins for connecting monitor to PC and PC to printers
Anyway, I doubt if I’ll get any blogging work done before the weekend. We’re still expecting rains, but hopefully no more flooding. Clean up starts in an hour or two.
You all stay safe and warm!
