Feeling the Weight of the World

I'm sitting at my computer writing this post and eating a delicious hot meal. I have a blanket wrapped around me and a little heater on at my feet. We're having apple crisp for dessert. Across the street from us is where they are bringing many of the evacuees from [...]
