"stranded"

Jen attends college in Rhode Island. She's not in Rhode Island right now, she's "stranded" at home.

she came home for spring break March 19. she should have gone back on the 28th, but decided to stay until today so that she could celebrate Passover with the family.

then came the deluge.

yesterday she got an email from the shcool that classes were cancelled and all nonessential employees were being sent home. portions of I-95 were flodded, and a bridge near the campus had been totally washed out.

no classes today either, and no idea when the bridge might reopen. the entire state is a federal disaster area. fortunately the worst of it is in towns that aren't near the campus.

I am not sure when she will be able to drive back to school. hopefuly it will be better tomorrow.
