Glad you & la kittenz are okay bibblez, same for you Nancy.
I slept like a baby last night once I turned off the bloody computer where I had obsessively been watching the local Police dept updates coming in fast and furious the last of which said ALERT!!!! LEAVE HOMES NOW!!!!
Warning! Rant ahead: I went to a dr's appt this morning, didn't know how the roads would be getting there but short of slow moving traffic all was okay so afterwards I decided to go to the mall, not the normal mall I would go to because it's in a flood zone and probably looks like a moat right now. On my way to the other mall I notice that traffic coming in the opposite direction is completely stopped for as far the eye can see, miles and miles and miles...note to self, do not go back home on this road. I shop then I get on the big highway that is quite elevated in most places but in a couple of miles we stop and crawl the rest of the way home. I can't get off at my exit because that area is flooded so I get off at another one that is out of my way and the traffic there is very bad, probably due to everyone bailing off the highway. A journey of what is normally 15 minutes clocked in at about 90.
As of this morning 60 people were trapped in the Holiday Inn by me since Sat with no water or electricity and water in the parking lot as high as the cars. There isn't even a river there. Why hasn't the storm water abated by now? The storm ended yesterday morning, why were there not crews in boats attempting to rescue these poor people yesterday?
So...I was supposed to go to NYC tomorrow but I don't see how that's going to happen with all the local roads flooded. I attempted to reach the bus line to find out what the deal is but no one answers and when I go to their website I get a virus alert & it closes.
F**K it, I'm opening the wine.
ETA: Oh, "my exit" as mentioned earlier - is not flooded, the road and bridge on it collapsed. Great. *chugs wine with vigor*
