School called due to lack of arks

We live in New Hampshire, so we are used to schools being closed due to massive snow fall. Tonight we received an email message from a school mailing list letting us know that there is no school on Monday because of rain. Over the last couple of days, parts of the state have received over TEN INCHES of rain. Most of the state's numerous rivers are at flood stage. The govener declared a state of emergency and activated the national guard.

This is the second time in the last six months that the state has experienced serious flooding.

We're fine. Our development is up on a hill. The commute to work tomorrow could be interesting for both of us. The rain is not supposed to let up until mid day on Monday. K is supposed to be going to an over night camp from Wednesday through Friday. I hope the situation abates before then. He and his classmates have been looking forward to this trip for weeks.
