Why I may not complain about the weather here

E-mail from Mom in Eastern Massachusetts this morning with a general update, which tells me that her school's fields were flooded by a river, and now they have a land-locked pond teeming with twenty-pound carp.

I'd been following the news some, of course, and relatively speaking that's nothing, but there's something about the image of twenty-pound fish in the middle of an athletic field to really make the news concrete.

(Yes, I spam LJ when I'm stressed, why do you ask?)
