Yesterday it rained and rained and rained. Our streets flooded, and Jared and I waded up to our knees to get our car. We were soaked through and had to spend the night at my grandparent's house because there was no way back to our apartment....besides waders or a row boat.

I am thankful for grandparents, warm showers, and my landlord who came to warn us about the rapidly rising water and the great possibility that our car would be totaled if we didn't move it quickly.

Riverside is covered in cats. Once I counted cats on a neighborhood walk: 20. 20 cats!! There's a mama and four babies that split there time under our house and a neighbors. When the rain came down I could hear the cats crying. I was so afraid for those little kittens. This morning when we got home, Jared and I sat in the car a moment and watched as the mama slowly peaked her head out from under the building, followed by all four little ones. They played on the steps and wrestled with a potted plant. What a relief. I am also very grateful for that.
