First, hard drive failure on Monday: No writing accomplished. School work only.
Second, reloading reformatted hard drive, Tuesday and Wednesday: Minimal writing accomplished.
Third, driving through torrential downpours going and coming from work Thursday: Still, some writing accomplished.
Fourth, wide scale flooding in the neighborhood on Friday. I managed to make it out of the neighborhood Friday morning but coming home I had to park a couple of miles away and hoof it through waist deep water for a good ways before making it to semi-solid land. We then waited out storm cell after storm cell, with rain coming in sheets while the black sky blammed with lightning and thunder, and with the water creeping steadily higher in our yard: Writing not even attempted.
It turns out one of the pumping stations in Abita Springs broke down and our area got the worst of the backup during the day and early night on Friday. Fortunately, neither of our cars were damaged. Nor was our house. And this morning the sun is flaming from a wide blue sky and the swamp in our yard is gradually receding.
Will there be writing today? We'll see.
By the way, Lana has a flood pic and more info on the experience at her blog.
