geoviki: (Yeah! - lileks)
Our fake sump pump (aka R2D2, our new wet-dry vac) is keeping up with the water so far, and we both slept through the night last night.  Today we even had sunshine for most of the day, but another storm cell just moved through and dumped another 1/2 inch on us.  We went out digging trenches around our property just for something to do.

But the most amazing thing so far is:

Our son joined FEMACorps in August, which is a US government agency-volunteer situation (think Peace Corps but for disasters).  He went off to train in Maryland and was supposed to work in the Atlantic northwest (West Virginia to Maine, diagonally speaking).  He just got finished with additional training in Alabama, was on the road to Kansas City, and just got the word...he and his crew are on their way back home to Denver to deal with the flood.  Not only that, they're to be headquartered in my very own building (when I'm working).  Now how's that for serendipity?

Looking forward to seeing him again!
