I want to say I'm ok. The river is a few blocks from my house. Even if it got flooded around here like it did a few years ago, my house is higher than the others on my block.
I am the neighborhood nanny. I have house keys and alarm codes. I take in lost kids and feed stray animals when the need arises. I look in on elderly and handicapped folks, even cook for them sometimes. The last few days I've been dealing with one lady that has suddenly gotten really bad dimentia. She's convinced that burglars are getting into her house during the night and she's very afraid all the time.
I was prepared to write a good post but right now this lady is locked in her house and can't find her house keys. I worry about her because she sometimes turns the gas stove off enough to make the flames go out but not completely off so there is sometimes gas leaking. She changed the locks Wednesday while I was away and I don't have a copy anymore. I have called a lock company to come open the doors for us. I'll write a post either later today or tomorrow after I've helped her.
