Word and Image


We almost moved… not. But, there was one Saturday when the water rose and we didn’t know it. We are at sea level. And storms can come and raise the water level. But, on this particular day we were caught unaware. No rain and no storm, all the weather was out to sea. And the flooding was impressive. And the beach was gone. The water was right up to the dunes. And I thought that if the sea rose – with climate change – we would be underwater, and, perhaps we should be gone (from the neighborhood) before that sad day. Colleen had a new place picked out before the day was done. Scotland or Maine, pick. I’m sticking – for now. Packing is too nerve wracking.

  1. Scotland or Maine? …..I’d be going to the liquor store for all the empty boxes I could find!

    • No, this is Delaware. Climate change is upon us. 🙂

      • I mean, if my choices were moving to Scotland or Maine, I’d be out there hunting for as many boxes as I could find and filling them.
