PATSP is closed due to flooding.

Lost internet service this morning around 7 AM, and according to Qwest, it's not coming back anytime soon because the server is underwater. Why Qwest chooses to put their servers in basements, instead of flood-safe, tornado-safe third floors or something, I don't know.

Also there's some concern about work: as far as I know we're still open indefinitely, but there is a creek behind the store, and the water is rising, and at some point we're going to have to shut off water and electricity and see what happens. The thinking is that all the plants are likely to make it, though the back greenhouses may or may not be in the same place next week that they're in this week.

Posts will resume at whatever point I can routinely access the internet again; I have absolutely no idea when this might be. They keep calling this a 500-year flood, on the news. This would be a more helpful term to me if I remembered the last 500-year flood, obviously.
