Dream a Flood


This morning I dreamt that I woke up...

I looked out of my second story window, and the ocean had risen up to just under the window sill. I ran around my house, not going downstairs, of course. There were a bunch of new rooms that I hadn't seen before, and I thought to myself "have I gotten so ingrained in my day-to-day that I haven't seen these rooms in my own house?" I found an emergency radio, but they were playing a tango and talking over it, nothing about the flood.
