Things I've Learned Over The Past 24 Hours

  1. Maps like this are bad news -- especially when they look like this for days.

  2. Despite what corporate America says, excessive lifting (about 35 large buckets of water into the basement sink last night) causes back injuries (as I lie in bed with my trusty computer and not-so-trusty dogs.)

  3. Backs wear out faster than other parts of the body. When a little voice tells you "Dude, take it easy. Remember, your ancestors would have been dead by now," you should listen.

  4. When your kid gets to be around 15, he can actually be helpful.

  5. It could always be worse: Sewage-Infested Flood Forces Evacuation.

Now, where was that bottle of ibuprofin?
