In brief

Hey all. Well, it's a crazy mess here in Iowa City/Coralville. Luckily, even though I live on a road that t-bones into Dubuque Street and the Iowa River, I'm at the top of the hill, so I'm staying high and dry (so to speak). It looks like we're going to have largely dry weather this week and I believe the river crested yesterday. Now it's just the slow wait for the levels to go down.

While I count my blessings, it's dire for so many and I feel a great deal of sympathy for those affected by the flood. At some point I may post some pictures, but frankly, my guess is anyone who wants to see the devastation to Iowa can google it.

The University has suspended classes until Monday the 24th. Non-essential personnel have been told to not come in to work, so I'm off this week with pay (which is nice). But after a week and a half of vacation, I'm READY to go back. Unfortunately, Jessup Hall has no power, so I've communicated to my boss that as soon as we have juice again, I'm going in. In the meantime, I guess I'll weed the gardens and clean out my gutters. Here's hoping you are all doing well out there in Blogland.
