I believe the answer would be Florida.

Surprise, surprise... looks like the weatherman cried wolf. All the severe weather and 2"+ of rain ended up being .8" in a light shower.

Unfortunately, it is scaring the crap out of me. They got rain north of Indy while the bulk of it missed us, and that's how the past few rain events have been. Already shaping up the way last summer was, and I do not want to relive that kind of a weather pattern.

That is some fantastic news! Congratulations!

Don't Panic!

Not trying to start a run, but I remember some members asking for notification when I start a new DISDad thread. Please remind me who you are.

And does anyone know how to make a text group on iphone?

Will post in all three clubhouses.

‘Morning all…

Eventful evening to say the least.
All y’all in Bean-town stay in, stay safe.
It will be interesting to hear the specific “whys” once this calms down.

Let me emphatically second this.
Start now…
Save three times more then you can stand…
Then save more…
Once you’ve done that; save more.

ignore this advice at your own peril.

Forecasts are frustrating.
Prayers for the weather in the Midwest.
Y’all do not need another year like the last one.

DW and I lived in the city, on the marathon route, before we had kids, and we spend a lot weekends in there these days with DD and DS. DD has been sheltered from the news, so she has no idea what happened, but I'm not sure how we'll handle talking to her about it the next time we're in there and she sees the damage/memorial sites that I'm sure will be up. Part of me wants to keep her away from it for a while, but the other part of me doesn't want to ever feel like someone can take my city away from me. For that reason we'll probably head in with the kids for a day in the next couple of weeks and explain it then.

Could use some good news, fast!



Thanks for listening guys.
After the Newtown shootings, my DD's class talked about it in school. She was pretty shook up for a few days, but has settled back to normal now. But she still goes around to ever door in the house right before bed to make sure they are all locked.
Stay safe, Paul. Check in as often as you can.

Glad you guys are still ok. Hopefully they catch the remaining fugitive soon. As for the kids, that's a hard one. We know we can't shield them from the realities of the world forever, but we all wish we could.

The city will come back strong, though. History has shown it's not a good idea to start a fight with us in Boston.

Thanks for listening guys.
Of course we’re listening.
That’s what we do.


In 2001, our son had just started the 1st grade. The school he attended physically separated the grades by hall and chose not to discuss the events on the halls below the 4th, deferring to the parents for those young’ens. Our approach was to answer all questions but not to dwell. He really learned about it in detail as recent history in middle school. I cant’ prove that this approach was either good or bad, but I know he wasn’t really able to critically process what happened at the time, so I’m good with that decision.

Different folks have dealt with this in different ways.

You know your kids…
Trust your instincts.
