My brother Cory–this handsome devil holding a newborn Brielle– has been evacuated from his home. Historic flooding–not that it’s ever good to be in the news for flooding–has occurred in his area. His apartment building already has four feet of water around it. The restaurant he manages in downtown Cedar Rapids doesn’t have water in it yet, but odds are not good that it will make it through the week dry. Cory’s perfectly fine, and his apartment isn’t on the first floor so his stuff will all be ok. He’s just feeling frustrated from the situation and not knowing when he’ll get back to work, how big of a mess there will be to clean up, ect. He’s staying with friends, and currently they have no power.
