Rain, Rain, Go Away

We are fine, we left town as soon as school was done. We headed down the highway with a sheet of black rain behind us, and arrived home in torrential downpour, but it was home. This morning, we can see where all of the usual flood areas have flooded, and more. There are landslides everywhere on the Lady Young Road, and the mud is turning into dust.

A child died last night after her home in St. Anns was swept down the hill, and Christmas doesn't look so good for farmers.

And this afternoon, it will rain again. Government ministers will act surprised and talk of "Acts of God".

And so life will go on.

That first comment was way to flippant given the nature of the situation you guys are dealing with down there. The unfortunate thing is that there is nothing I can do or say, from this distance, that would make any difference to what you're dealing with. Except to say that I hope and pray that you and yours are safe - and that you stay safe.

Oh man. I'm going to hope for a break in the clouds--you NEED it.
