Talked to Merriwether. He is on day 3 of the big neighborhood block party. No power. No land phone. Spotty cell coverage. Intermittent tap water. Home supplies excellent. Encountered a possum. Spring Creek still over banks. It's good to be prepared.

The wethergirls are really missing their daddy, however, I'm glad that we don't have to be there, even though this single mom thing is tough.
