Reports tell us that the water will continue to rise for a few days more. The businesses of Marietta will closely watch the whelming Ohio as it creeps closer and closer to their doors. I hope the swell stops before it comes indoors. Our buildings become puny when compared to the power of nature.

Many Drips a River Make
Yesterday was pi day. That is because March 14 is represented by 3.14. I guess that is pi. I Don't know numerals. They don't stick in my head. I do know pie. Pie are round. Pie sticks on my hips. Like I said, I don't do numerals very well. That is different from numbers. I have a concept of numbers. Right now, the woods are full of many numbers off frogs. The cry of peepers fill the dark with high-pitched "peeps" as the fog sinks in to coat the woods with a creamy thick darkness. I go to the compost pile at midnight and hear a "drip, drip, drip." from branches and briars. The fog is so thick that I can't tell if the drips come from rain or fog.
