Dateline: Tuvalu



Lots of water, not much damage.
My four boys worked most of the night to keep the basement dry.
This is the road (washed out) to the supermarket!

Of course, they've found ways to stay amused.

Glad they're safe, if a little damp. Hope you're enjoying the heck out of the Windy City!

I've been glued to the screen searching for live cams to show me the situation while emailing family members around Tuvalu.
It's passed.
Have a drink. Or three.

Glad to hear all is well in Tuvalu. relatively speaking. I hope the water will be gone SOON.

We in GA (and I'm sure TX) would have been happy to have some of that rain...

So glad it was a load of water they had to contend with.

It had sounded so ominous.

yes. well. It is a duck crossing, after all.

Whew! So glad for everyone that it wasn't worse.

Oh my. I have been avoiding looking at news coverage. But this gives me a glimpse. I'm glad it wasn't worse for you and the rest of yours. Cheers to the boys for keeping the basement dry. That took some doing, I bet.

My favorite part of all of this is the duck crossing sign. Glad you weathered the weather.
