Bottom line is that on Saturday night I made it home from the Emergency Operations Center. I had to drive almost 20 miles out of my way to avoid downed trees and flooded streets, but I made it home.
Most of the way home was dark. I mean dark as in no streetlights, house lights, etc., dark. Several times I came upon a tree across the road a little quicker than I would have imagined at 25 miles per hour type dark. My street was dark with the exception of one neighbor and our house, but the water was a bit high. It would have been fine for and SUV but my Ford Focus was at a disadvantage. I probably could have made it to the driveway but about 100 feet short of it the water looked too deep, so I turned and parked the car. It was a block and a half wade home.
Spent yesterday trying to rest up but it turned out that we didn’t have to work today, so today was “clean the debris day.”
I apologize for not being very interesting today, but I’ve had enough interesting for a while. I’ll try to do better tomorrow.
