A day for remembering

The rain started here about noon and has continued on and off since then.  We're supposed to get more of the spin-off from Harvey tonight and tomorrow - about 2" here.  Nashville and West TN are due to get maybe up to 11".  The devastation is just incredible.  Anne and Nick have been able to get come clearing out done, with the help of grandchildren.  But I don't know what they're going to do long-term or where they'll be staying.  They have a son living nearby, but he had 3" of water in his house.
John died two years ago today.  Like Beth told me on the first anniversary of Joe's death, it doesn't hurt any more today than any other day.  But it's still a day to be especially close.
