I'm safely in Iowa, land of bad flooding. Although the water level is way down, you can now see all the debris that will have to be cleared out. It is hard to imagine what an awful mess it is.
On the bright side, I got to have breakfast with my daddy and have plenty of books and knitting along.
What more can you ask from a vacation?
P.S. In answer to Knittech's question - it get days of restful knitting and don't have to help slog mud and debris. Thankfully, where my dad lives, there was no water damage.
