It rained solid here in Southeastern Virginia for three days. The temperature has ranged from the low 60's to the 90s. The bloated wet corpse of TS Nicole arrived Thursday with yet more rain  but added gale force winds and a tornado. The trees, which were by then sitting in soup, began to fall and take powerlines with them.

We were lucky.  We retained power except for a few very brief flickers , though internet has been twitchy.

Yesterday was a glorious respite from the rain and I drove out to Rushmere to check on my brother. This soybean field gives some idea of how much water is still about.

(This was the only place on route 10 that I could pull off and take a picture)
Last night the rains returned.
And I swear thought we had a  very slight earthquake yesterday, although a quick check indicated that the closest one yesterday was in Doswell. Perhaps the house settled.

It's nice to be loved.
