    Heading back to Boston today on the Acela. Boston is under a flash flood watch. Hmmm.

    How long of a trip is that? It's been a few decades since I've taken the train. Did it from NC up to NJ when I was in undergrad.

    I'm fine physically, but emotionally a mess. One of the pets is very under the weather and they are not young any more.

    Sorry to hear it, good luck. Pets are family, as far as Iím concerned. The good ones anyway. I had a rat with a bad attitude once.

    Our house is two dogs, two cats, two humans. Balance in all things.

    I don't do cats, so I'm aiming for the simpler balance of two dogs, two humans.

    does the Acela have that Duck Boat option where you can scoot in the water?

    Rain filled pool to the lip. Wasting some between downpours.

    Lots of flooding in the region. News saying 2-6 inches throughout region with 6 inches+ in certain locations. Ida appears to be causing river and creek swells not seen for about a decade around here.

    Our school system let out early. Just north of us, a school bus got caught:

    Well, the kids are alright.

    We did have an apartment building flood in Rockville, and one person died. That was at 4am this morning - which I suspect encouraged the schools to let out early in Mont Co.

    They did the same around here. State government employees, too.

    Several creeks in the area practically leapt from normal to major flood stage in a short amount of time:

    7 hours by train from Union Staion in DC to South Station in Boston. We actually got in about 15 minutes early. We saw several creeks/small rivers early in the ride that had obviously overborn their continents (Name that Shakespeare play!) but no obvious flooding once we got out of Maryland. The scary part was getting repeated TORNADO WARNING, EXTREME ALERT texts on all our phones about 5 times between Baltimore and Philly. It's kinda hard to get into the basement when you're on a moving train. That said, the sky never looked like it looked when tornados hit Durham, so, I was concerned but never really scared. I did text The Drewsk and asked him if I should be worried. He said no.
