Flood –worst in 100 years

To see the devastation in our town, go here:

We just got power back after five days without. No heat or phone or cable (though the DSL is working). I’m okay; mom’s okay; cats are okay; car okay.

Lots to tell, but it’s been a little busy here.

Back soon.

  1. OH MY HECK!!!

    But I am SOOOOOO glad that you were forewarned, and prepared to the gills! (Sorry for the pun!) You might as WELL be a fish, in your town! Sheesh! I was glad to hear from Colin that you’re OK, both cats and humans. Hopefully everything will be restored quickly, and you’ll be back to normal, once more!

    Ps–Where the heck did you park your car to be safe? Colorado?

  2. Glad that you’re safe. Sorry to hear that it’s happened again. 😦

  3. I’m glad the worst is over. We had a hurricane here in Nova Scotia four years ago that left everyone without power for a week. Lots of neighbourhood cooking in the backyard, to use up what was in everyone’s freezer. Lots of people chatting with each other by candlelight. It was kind of interesting how everyone enjoyed that, but as soon as the power came back on we all went back to using our electronic gadgets.

  4. Wow,

    I knew there had to be something vicious going on. I’m glad to hear everyone is okay!

  5. I’m glad you were finally able to check in! I’ve been worrying about you and the girls.

  6. oh my!

    I’m glad that you are okay as well as the girls and your mom. What did you do with your car?

  7. Aw geez. I was afraid of that. Are you okay?

  8. I’ve been so worried! I’m glad to hear you are okay. I hope recovery is quick and that everyone recovers fully. Living in hurricane country, I have seen this kind of devastation before, and I know how awful it is. My prayers and positive thoughts are with you.

  9. okay – i can stop hyperventilating. i was WORRIED!!!!
    so glad you and yours are okay. so sorry you have to deal with a freakin mess again. xxx rhi

  10. Glad to hear you are all ok. Is that wee cat from the close ok too, and not trapped in the basement? Sorry you have to deal with all the again, and so soon after the last one.

  11. Whew! That’s A LOT of water. I’m so glad you, your mom and your kitties are okay.

  12. Oh Devon, I am so glad you and your family (cats included) are fine. I was so worried. Praying for you!

  13. I started to comment yesterday when I got interrupted. I’m glad you’re safe! I’ve been worried about you. The pictures are just awful.

  14. can’t get the link page to come up, but knew that someting was going on when you warned and then went silent. So much news in silence.

    Glad you and all of your family (human and otherwise) are okay. Hope for you that this stops immediately and something gets done to prevent it’s occuring again. What a way to live!

    many hugs and warm thoughts

  15. I’m glad you and your mom are safe but to go through this TWICE in one season!!??? Do you need anything?

    Take care!!
