After the rain
I feel like I've been playing the waiting game this past couple of weeks. Waiting for the rain to stop, waiting for the inevitable power outage, waiting for the power to come back on, waiting for the cable, the internet etc... things that feel so normal to have everyday but mean so little in the face of a life-threatening storm. Apart from moving things out of our basement in the middle of the night (and despite a back up sump pump, we still got a foot of water down there), most of my night was spent trying to reassure my 5 year old that things will be back to normal and figuring out the safest and most comfortable way to get everyone to sleep.
(If you puzzled over the flower pictures, I just didn't want to post without pictures and these flowers feel like the sun to me. These were taken at a Longwood Gardens exhibit in spring last year.)
