It has been a long week here in flood country. The awful rainstorm caused rivers and lakes to overflow and even my basement got flooded. We have never had a water problem before. My rug is ruined and I have had to move a lot of things to higher ground.
From Amy Coffin comes this good news, the Census 2010 may have realized that thousands or tens of thousands of census forms that were addressed to those of us with post office boxes have been returned. My local post office delivered the reminder postcard and not the original form. The postmaster here did not think my concern was warranted until I told her it was a Federal crime not to fill out the form. I refused to let her touch the postcard which was handwritten with my post office box number telling her it was the only legal proof I had that I did not receive the form. She still was not impressed. I am still tempted to call our local newspaper with the story. I can't wait to move from this town!
I saw this tweet from the US Census folks and thought I'd pass this on here:
"Form lost/missing? 1) Wait until 4/12; you may get mailed another, 2) On 4/12, call 866-872-6868 and request replacement."
I wonder what time they get up in the morning.
