I've finished the final polishing of "Red is For Ick", which for those who missed it is a 62,000 word young adult mystery. It's ready to be sent out to potential agents, which I'll probably start right after Halloween. It's got a kind of Veronica Mars meets Gilmore Girls vibe to it ... I think it's pretty good, but that's up to future agents/editors to decide.
We didn't blow away, although I was out on storm watch for awhile Tuesday. There were 10 confirmed tornado touchdowns in this general part of Indiana: Two counties that adjoin ours suffered damage, but although we were placed under a warning there were no confirmed touchdowns here in Noble County.
Insurance is getting the accident all sorted out, and it looks like I'll get a rental while my car is repaired. Since we're taking a trip to Missouri in November, it'll be nice to know we won't have to hear the vibration of the crumpled panel or worry about the damaged tire giving way.
Aaaaannnnddd, the moment you've all been waiting for: Cute grandkids in costume, photo taken by their proud momma!
