    Whew!!! No more rain!! I don’t think the PI can handle any more flooding.

    Speaking of which, i wonder who’s taking care of the over 2 million flood victims from the recent devastating floods from about 3 months ago??

    Hope they have not been forgotten by the government and the Administration.
