Miserable Day
 

So if you live on the east coast then you no doubt had the miserable day I did! It’s been cold and has been raining all day. The poor people up north are getting sleet and snow! I guess I should count my blessings, but I think I might welcome that. Thanks to the non-stop rain our basement got flooded big time. It tends to flood during heavy rains, but this time it got hit hard. It’s not furnished and everything is stored in plastic boxes and up off the ground. However we did have a good number of empty cardboard boxes down there that got trashed and will need to be taken out. Oh yeah, the cat pans are down there too . . . . bio-hazard zone!

In other news I had a wonderful school related stress dream! I was back in class, but with friends and classmates from high school. Apparently a project was due and almost none of us had done it. I don’t remember what it was, it was some kind of book report/poster thing. I remember sitting around a round table as the presentations began. The teacher was my 9th grade English teacher. I somehow had in my bag a really poorly made poster/report on Steven Kings’ “In the Eyes of a Dragon.” Oddly it was done when I was in 9th grade (but I wasn’t in 9th grade in this class). I decided it was better than nothing! I tried to get the date off of it so the teacher wouldn’t know I had reused it. I was also trying to remember what the hell the book was about so I could get up and talk about it. I don’t know how it ended, I woke up. I also don’t know why when I have these dreams lately they always seem to involve my 9th grade English teacher. I wonder if she’s dead and communicating with me from the other side?

Do you get the musty, moldy smell in the basement after it floods? Always happened to my grandparents. Glad nothing of value was ruined! We had that nasty weather up here too, with flooding and destructive winds. I stayed warm and cozy at home for the most part.

Was your 9th grade teacher really tough on you?

Dustin,

At 2:50 a.m. it has been snowing here since 7 p.m. last night, and there is at least a foot of snow on the ground, as it has been snowing like mad all night. It is supposed to snow through tomorrow. It is quite messy here and cleanup is going to take at least a week.

I hope you guys are ok.

Jeremy
