so i was on my way to my girlfriend's house today and found this blocking the road:

thats usually a very small stream. that wasnt the only one either. there was one swamp usually on either side of the road that was about 4 inches over it as well, as well as a few other not-so-bad flooded parts of the road. my car did manage to make it through all of them though. one of the bigger rivers around here was so high that it was actually threatening someone's house near the banks. it was just about at the basement windows when i drove by, with DPW workers all over the place trying build sandbag barriers. ive never seen anything like this around here. the area has so many hills that nothing ever really floods, but apparently this time nature meant business. anyone else from new england getting any flooding?

It didn't flood us too bad. I have a friend in New York and it's raping them.

Yeah, no flooding. But the weather is whack. Crazy as hell. Our power went out today for school for the majority of the day because of wind + trees + powerlines. And we still had school. That sucked. It was really nice out though, nice and sunny, completely clear skies. Wish I had a kite at school today, would have been great.

It's was actually really funny. This week is Environmental Awareness Week, or something, and we had an assembly where these people had a presentation about how we should stop using so much power, use different lights, etc, etc. The class after it, we were talking about how we should just not have school tomorrow (today) and turn off all the power to the school and everyone just stay at home and in bed. And then the power went out.

It's crazy how much bad stuff can go on in a single day..
