Nothing can prepare you for this much devastation.
The flood of September 2011
left 12 FEET of water in the house..
that was from the basement
to 2 feet above the kitchen counters.
Our furniture, clothing, and other things
were spared, as we got them out,
either in the upstairs rooms,
or in the box truck.
The trailer, where we stored
a lot of the RV things we've been purchasing..
is totally ruined. Our washer & dryer,
This is a picture of how high the
water got to:
The American Legion brought food..
Public Health came and gave tetanus shots..
We are waiting for FEMA to
assess the situation,
there is a rumor that they may
condemn the whole area.
This will open us up for aid.
Please keep us in your prayers as
we try to decide our next move.
For now we are staying with some
good friends that have a spare room.
It's hard to 'live' in a place
that's not familiar,
out of your routine.
On the way home from
packing up the truck with the good things..
we saw this:
signs of promises to come.
