  • niggers! Gross

  • Terrible flooding indeed. Everyone looks like they can manage, even after the flood though. Cleaning up the flooded basement was probably a hassle for them, last year. I hope they installed some sort of anti-flooding system for their basement this time – the rainy storms are coming soon, and we need to prepare.
