As it turned out, there was nothing to worry about. The storm passed us and we got the warm, muggy, clear weather that follows a storm.
She Who Must Be Obeyed and our youngest made it back with no problems, although they did encounter some rain.
The rain before had messed up her reason for going: rice harvest. Now a group of cousins are being dragged out of retirement to help with harvest and we’ll probably have new rice in a couple weeks.
Our oldest also made it back from school on time, although there was some confusion about whether or not she needed lunch:
Me: When are you coming back today?
Me: Do you need lunch today?
Me: (shouting out window) Do you need lunch today?
It turned out she did need lunch, but she arrived home after I ate so I sent her on a mission to buy a lunch at a convenience store.
Then, I tried to teach her how to answer questions.
