Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

OMG there was so much damage!!!

At Jack’s apartment complex, there were limbs down all over the place!!!  There was a 10 car crash this morning on 183A!  It was a VERY bad ice storm!!!

But it’s all melted now.  Thankfully!

I went to class today, Dave spent most of the day taking his crew and helping cut limbs.  He’s nice that way.  He did the same thing back in the tornado last year.  Plus he took a little for firewood.  We don’t have much that uses firewood, but he likes to use it for grilling sometimes.  All of our friends escaped major damage, but there were a few dings and scratches.

I’m just glad it’s over.

They’re making a big deal out of black history month at school, but Sabby wants me to ignore all that.  She says that there’s no such thing as black history or white history, there’s just history and we all share it.  I guess I can see her point.  She’s very different than some of the black people I meet at school – they’re kind of loud and annoying when they just keep complaining about everything.  But Sabby’s always been really levelheaded.  I guess it really isn’t about the color of your skin, but the content of your character.

I guess I don’t even really notice that she’s black.  She’s just… Sabby to me.

I guess if I have to choose between listening to loud and annoying people, or Sabby… I’ll choose Sabby every time.

Oh well.  Liz is over tonight.  Beth didn’t really want the girls over, she just wanted to spend some time by herself.  She gets a little moody sometimes, especially since… you know… with Crystal.  She’s still seeing a therapist but some scars don’t heal easily, I guess.  She loves Crystal, but… sometimes… it gets too much, I guess.

Liz and I are just hanging out and playing quiet games.  Neither of us really feel like being too boisterous.  I guess that’s a good thing.  There’s some balloon or something that China sent over the US and everyone’s in a tizzy about it, but Liz is as upset about it as everyone else.  She… doesn’t have much loyalty to China.  I guess I can understand that.  She’s an American.  Like me.

Okay…  guess it’s time for bed.

Love you all!!! ❤
