Our power only went out for about 5 minutes last night. We had some flooding in the basement, but able to pump most of the water up. What water is left is being soak up by the clement floor and fans are being used to dry the floor. Jonwin is cleaning up the mess left by the flooding now, having made sure to bring home extra trash bags from work Sunday.
We got some sleep between checking on basement and 3 cats. Our newest cat Bella, is being kept in my studio until they get use to each others scent, though at night we have her sleep with us, while locking the other 2 cats out of the bedroom. Most of the night, Bella had to stay alone in studio, as we slept down in the living room for safety. When around 5 am, we finally felt it was safe to sleep up in bedroom, Bella quickly settle down across my neck. Thankfully she is a very small calico, who like to wash my face for me and keep me warm.
We're stuck home, as Jonwin can't get to work due to flooding around the USS Constellation and Mayor closed roads to non emergency traffic. Hoping that tomorrow city life will be back to normal, as I been looking forward to going to Halloween party.

"England needs, examples of people who, leaving Heaven to decide whether they are to rise in the world, decide for themselves that they will be happy in it, and have resolved to seek, not greater wealth, but simpler pleasures; not higher fortune, but deeper felicity; making the first of possessions self-possession, and honouring themselves in the harmless pride and calm pursuits of peace." - John Ruskin
