While I knew many parts have been experiencing terrible rains and wind, I only just saw some aerial photos from the BBC news on our PBS (public tv) channel. Wow! I feel so badly for all who are impacted by these rains and the overflowing rivers. Please check in when you can. I'm surprised not to have seen some photographs on the site, though I may well have missed them. I promise not to complain about our snows, after learning mor about your floods!
