Flood Update or Batten 2: Keep on Battenin’

For everyone asking about us: we’re fine. Our apartment has a couple inches of standing water in the basement that they pumped out and it seems to have returned. This isn’t actually that big a deal in the short term, as we don’t use our basement for anything. Other than that, the biggest impact of the flooding on our daily lives is on transportation. Bus service is disrupted at our nearest bus stops and roads that we most frequently use are closed. So far, we’re doing pretty well.

That said, four more days of rain are in the forecast. So things might still get hairy. The flood waters are receding very slowly, so more rain might do a lot of damage.

Update: the state of emergency has been lifted for our area and the waters are still dropping. I’ve added some photos I took yesterday.
