A flood.

At this moment, the East coast of the US is experiencing massive flooding. Hurricane Irene, Hurricane Katia, Tropical Storm Lee…they are all dumping water on states from Maryland to New England.

My cousin has eight inches of water in her basement. My brother says he is beginning to collect animals two by two. So I’ll keep this short, for those of my readers who are trying to bail out.

Here are the basics for you:

le sous-sol = the basement
un seau = a bucket
une pompe =
a pump
récupérer = to salvage
des champignons = mold
des prières = prayers
eau non potable = water not safe for drinking

Please stay safe, and don’t drink the water!
