Here is the other side of the coin: currently, I still have power (pun not intended); I have some lawn on which the dogs can do their business; we all, like everyone else in this area and beyond, have cabin fever. We have a roof, we have food. We are alive. We will be broke due to needed repairs after all goes down but this is a situation where one says, indeed, it is only money: the furnace can wait till fall to be replaced while I save up; I truly don't mind laundromats - I have Zen time while I wait.

If anyone is able, the Humane Society of Southeast MO has an emergency animal shelter set up at the 4H building in Arena Park. They really need volunteers as this rain keeps coming and both people and pets lose their homes - hopefully, temporarily. I am sorry - I cannot bring in anyone else at this time due to the situation as you see here at Silverwalk. Please remember us in your prayers. Donations can be made to Silverwalk Hounds at our website. They will strictly be used to ensure good dog care, though at this time, some of that assurance will be repairing and replacing appliances and fencing.
