The Wettening

The storm arrived this morning, but never had the wind speeds predicted: We were supposed to have winds from 20 to 35 mph with gusts up to 50, but the wind seemed to stick in the 10 to 20 mph range. The water, however, has come down seriously. We've had about three inches today where we live so far, and the rain is supposed to keep up through the night. Nearby areas have gotten 9 inches in the past 48 hours. This had led to a fair bit of flooding. We're fine here so far, and I've been keeping an eye on the nearby storm drains.

The kids went to school as usual, and M-lady and I opted to work from home. Nanny J arrived and brought the kids home and got them situated, and we let her head home early to avoid driving in the dark and through potential floods. The kids skipped TKD today, but had a good time playing. They got their homework done fairly efficiently, and we had dinner at about 6:00. The kids did a good job with piano, and then played Starbound on my computer until it was time to get ready for bed.

One of Buster's teeth is just about ready to come out, and he's pretty excited. Hopefully tomorrow will bring some dryness (it's still supposed to rain, however) and some clearer roads.
