Well, that is what it has felt like here, with 10 inches of rain in 72 hours. We got lucky---just a LITTLE water in the basement---others were totally flooded.


Tomorrow I leave for NYC, where I will do a video-taped interview with Barnes & Noble, also an interview with Time (magazine) for Kids, and then out to Long Island to speak at a teachers' conference. Home Saturday, just in time to see my son and his friend who are coming overnight Saturday night and will take me to brunch Sunday for my birthday; then next week I go briefly to Harrisonburg, Virginia.  It's a busy, busy spring---but most of it good stuff.

And crocuses are blooming like crazy in my yard.
