I have not done too much gardening these past few days as I have been fairly preoccupied by all the flood damage in my area, including the Whetstone Studio building where I have my printmaking studio. At least three studios emptied into the drink and the building is currently deemed unsafe for entry. We are hoping to be cleared sometime to retrieve our printing press and equipment. This is a small tragedy compared to what others have suffered these past few days. The cleanup will take a very long time as roads have been replaced by rivers, bridges are gone, and houses have moved hundreds of feet.
