Land Ahoy!!!!



Land, we see land! Yay, the water in front has receded and I can get my car out..now maybe I can get my packages shipped, they are allowing traffic on the street again so the mailman and dhl can get in! The back, now its still a 3 foot swimming pool...but oh, what a mess....I'll be knee deep in mud and muck trying to make this place livable again...I did lose some inventory in the garage...going to try to access the losses today...wish me luck!

Arlene ~ Yay ! You can see land, that must feel good except for the clean up ~ YUCK !!! I am sorry that you are having to go through this ~ Do you have any pics of the "after the water" ?

Bless your heart...I hope you don't have a lot of loss and that you are soon high and dry again.

Sorry you will have some losses, but so glad you are all safe. Thanks for keeping us updated on your situation, I was thinking about you today.

Been thinking about you a lot Arlene. It's no fun but I hope you are doing well and on your way to getting things cleaned up. Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink. Yuk! xoxo Lynn
