It's Wet And I'm Tired


Parts of Iowa are submerged beneath inches and, in some places, feet of water. So are other sections of the Midwest U.S., but Iowa is where I'm at and what I'm experiencing. Last night we learned of the tragic deaths of four people at a Boy Scout camp in western Iowa after a tornado descended on their gathering. Reports are that if not for the quick action of those present, the loss of life might well have been even greater. My hat is off to those heroic young men and my thoughts are with those who lost their loved ones.

If you watch the news, you already know what's going on here. I can't tell you much except it's worse than what's shown on TV. My days are hectic, non-stop and exhausting, lasting at least 16-17 hours between waking up and going back to sleep, then waking up and starting all over again. In fact, I'm going to post this and then hit the sack. We're expecting to stay on this kind of schedule for at least another two weeks, barring any other situations.

If my posting is sporadic, you'll understand why.
