Flood update

Thank you so much all the well wishers and people praying for us. Mom is realy chuffed. She never beleived so many people cared. This last week has been quite profound and mom and us, we have all have been very worried. A special person also entered our lives two weeks ago, but in a very private way and helped us a lot.  The roads are now nearly clear. The electricity is still very erratic. It comes and goes. The mass body idenification took place today and a car was going round with a loud speaker announcing the names of the dead and asking for assistance for all those that have lost their homes. Mom is getting some food together for them.  Thank you to Chandra for hi lighting our situation. They have all the bodies laid out and are awaiting dentification by relatives. A lot of people came up from Rio with jeeps to help ferry these people to the identification centre. It is still raining torentially.  Will it ever stop? The dogs are well. We hear the rain  may stop by Wednesday. We hope tomorrow to return to a more normal life, if there is no more damage tonight. Thank you for all your messages. It is great to know you care. Now I am going to lie on my sofa and realx.
Mom and dad will check out the dog situation here tomorrow if possible and by the bakery. Still have no idea how many survived. Not many made it here up to higher ground.

Thanks for your update on the recovery situation. It's good to hear that you're able to relax a bit :) Wednesday is only 2 days away.. I hope the rain goes away as it's supposed too.

Abracos, Emmy, e para sua mae e pai tamben.

Emmy, make room for Mom and Dad on the sofa, too, and tell them to take a rest! I remember you said that they sit on the wooden chairs while you lounge on your couch but these are special circumstances!

We hope the dogs you are concerned about are okay. It's hard to think of so many humans and animals that didn't make it.
