Unfortunately, I am by the flooding - I live near Lake Grapevine. Our neighborhood is totally fine, but the main route out of town is shut down from flooding, as is my "back road" for getting home. Add in the construction in the area, and it's kind of the perfect storm of commuting nightmares.
Luckily, my boss has graciously agreed to let me work from home until 2499 reopens. And at least it's just inconvenience - it would be worse to live in the flooded areas for sure. Although why they let people build in floodplains around here, I'll never understand.
sloth - my first gut reaction to the Icky Thump block was "cool!" My next thought was "oh crap - paper piecing!" lol
I added everyone's block selections to page 1.
