*Close the Windows

So. Floodwaters did not come into my apartment, but they came awfully close.

It smells a bit.

But nothing like how it smells here:

That is the nearest major intersection to my building, and I hadn't driven there until this evening...the road from here to there is still closed. I forgot on my way back from campus, though, and ended up being another looky-loo.

Good heavens, the smell. Living in Iowa, I am subjected to the occasional cow pasture or hog lot stink, but not normally in the middle of town. It was worse than a cow pasture...almost but not quite on par with a hog lot. I started gagging and had to roll up the car windows.

Seattle doesn't flood or get a lot of snow, does it?

Someone else tell her about the hippies ;~)

Atlanta is both flood and hippie free. Plus we have awesome museums and award winning microbreweries.

...and extremely nasty traffic and no water...

Hmm, Atlanta in winter might be doable, but only if I can summer in northern Wisconsin.

Yeah, Jim forgot to mention the Atlantan summer heat & humidity. Sherman didn't set fire to the city; it spontaneously combusted from all the mosquitoes doing...something. Playing with matches, I guess.
