This is probably the longest I’ve gone without updating my blog. I try to update it every few days, and it’s been about a week or so. Due to major flooding in parts of northeastern, Pennsylvania, I’ve been stranded at my brother’s house in Exeter Borough since Thursday.
I’m in the process of moving in with my girlfriend in Kingston, a town that had to evacuate, due to the uncanny rainfall that caused the Susquehanna River to swell and exceed the level it reached during Hurricane Agnes in 1972- a natural disaster that wiped out several houses and businesses in this area. However, since then, there’s been a levee system built in this area, and it’s held.
We’re hoping to get back into our apartment later today or tomorrow at the latest. We look forward to getting our home back in order and unpacking all of the boxes we took when we had to evacuate. But we’re just thankful we didn’t get flooded.
Unfortunately, several other towns around here did have major flooding, as shown on local and national news. I hope they have a quick recovery. We’ll probably buy some cleaning supplies and donate them at a center later today to help out the flood victims.

Hi, thanks for this. As you hear the word about re-entering the town, please let me know. My writing life is suffering great blows from this adjustment…!!!
