On Memory, I did fine until the break....then when I came back in, I was in the wrong key for a line or two!  Oops....

The Author's Fair this year apparently pissed off Mother Nature; there were storms, tornadoes, and 6 inches of rain fell in the span of maybe 6-8 hours?  At any rate, both I-64 and US 41 were shut down with flooded areas in the afternoon.  Thankfully by 5pm, the water had receded and we were able to get home w/o any problems.
