The river has risen much faster than expected. The flooding is stretching past Old Shakopee Rd and is expected to reach the Hyland Park Reserve within the hour. Houses that we weren’t going to evacuate for days are now underwater.

It’s not even raining.

Something is coming out with the water. People are dying, and not just from the flood.

My office has received so many calls the phone line fried itself.

Why am I so calm, you ask?

If you must know, I’m heavily medicated right now. My family is out of the state and so is out of harm’s way, and I am on so many different medications that standing too close to me might get you strung out. That’s how I plan to get through today.

I haven’t even tazed anyone yet.
