Hundreds of thousands flee Northeast floods (but I’m not one of them)

Because some have asked, yes, we do live less than a mile from the Schuylkill River (pronounced skooo-kill, for the uninitiated, skookl for the natives) but despite the fact that most national news agencies make it look like all of Pennsylvania is now a big rapidly-moving lake, the river is a mile down a really big hill from me.

I am not, in fact, underwater. The worst I’ve had to deal with is nastier-than-expected traffic on the highways. And I’m equal-parts thankful of that fact and hoping for the best for those who are being impacted much more severely.
