We are safe and dry

We live in Columbia, SC where a state of emergency has been declared due to heavy rainfall and flooding. If you have seen the news it is devastating here with many friends being evacuated and their homes being flooded. We are ok -- just some moisture in the garage so no playing out there right now. We are lucky to still have power and water (boil notice) but many do not have either. The images of roads getting completely washed out, buildings destroyed by floodwaters, and cars floating down and being swallowed by the water are breathtaking.

This is how we spent the day yesterday. I hope all the cats out there stayed dry and safe. Dad said Parker, the cat who patrols his parking lot at work, has a shed she can get to a few businesses down from Dad's office. Today is still raining and unfortunately the wind is picking up which worries up with the trees around us. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for the purrs.

We're so glad you are safe. We live in Fayetteville, NC and we too were supposed to get lots of rain. Thankfully we dodged that extent.
