Shortly after waking up to a food catastrophe (near disaster, really), the power went out. Thinking about it, this is another fortunate thing. Had the power gone out at, say, 3am, and not come back on before 11am, let's say, my house might have burned down. That would have been at least inconvenient.
They say not to try to cross water that's over roadways. Well, except for local newscasters who have been saying to be careful when you do it - either they're unfamiliar with flooding protocol, or they know that people (me) live in places where they (I) would be stranded under those rules.
My next door neighbor's been sending me IMs telling me to come home, that the roads are washing out in our area. I don't think I've ever left work early on account of rain before.
