memphis flood

So I'm home.

And I have now seen how high the creek is by my house and oh my god.

I know. I live on relatively high ground and last year we were fine - but this isn’t last year and holy shit that creek is so high.

Of course, it was higher last week. That should be comforting, but not really.

And big fucking shocker - the schools most likely to be affected by the flood are the ones in the poor parts of town.

I did see a vulture on the way home and also some geese, including a gosling. So there’s that.


A Memphis Rap Jam for Christmas at the Hi-Tone
