We're dry in Peabody

Many thanks to all who have been following the Northeast flood news and expressing concern. Except for a little leaking in the garage, we're dry and well. Getting around and avoiding the kind of puddles that sweep your car downstream has been hairy at times, but we're still at least 6 feet above the water table of our pond, and, since we have no basement, that's no problem.
