This flood is a pretty darn big deal. Yesterday I had a lot of students in class, because so many hadn't heard that they would be excused to sandbag. Today a very small number are here. Those who are are doing nothing. I am also watching some other classes so people can sandbag. I feel so guilty that I can't go help. I want to. I did it in 1997. The work, camaraderie, and feeling of being of help was fulfilling to me. With Thad on 12 hour shifts through the weekend, however, I am unable to assist.
What I want to do is help somehow. If any of you know of people who need food brought to them, please let me know.
