PEOPLE IN FLOODING AREAS: Please, please, PLEASE, if you come across a road that is water covered, do not attempt to cross it. Currents can be hard to discern and even a few inches of water can be enough to sweep away a person or even a vehicle.
ETA: Just after I posted this, P called to say that the Sherriff's Dept. was out informing residents of a recommended evac, as the road to the Pen will probably be closed within the next 4 days. Power is out ATM, but might be restored. I'm going to do some work here quick and then head home. Kitties will probably stay with a roasting pan of food and a big pot of water on the second and third floors. Well, I'm really glad I bought so much reading materials last weekend.
