So far so good on my end. Many people around aren't as lucky. 

 

Bonus, short clip of me rowing down a driveway.

Holy fuckballs.

Are the water levels staying roughly manageable where you live?

Because I've seen videos of people fishing in their kitchens and shit.

My house in particular is fine. We had a break today and a lot of the water drained off. I'm also a few feet in the air because it's an old pier and beam house. Some of the lower neighborhoods around are still very much flooded though.

Had water up to my door at the worst of it. Never made it inside though so no worries. My house is at the high point of my street so some people on my road are less fortunate. Spent part of the day helping shopvac water for people.


First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me-- and there was no one left to speak for me.

And if you decide to stay dangerous be sure to film it.

Yeah. More people have been rescued by guys with lifted trucks and fishing boats than by any government service. Not to say the coast guard/national guard isn't doing a ton.
