Flooding SUCKS!!!!

We are displaced, but we are safe. We are staying at an extended stay hotel (to maintain the sanity of ALL involved). We had to be rescued yesterday afternoon.

We had a total of 6 feet in our basement of nasty sewer water. Sweet.

Pics and stories to come later. We don't have power at the house, and I am not sure what the hotel's situation is with computers. But believe you me, there WILL be stories, people. Stories galore.

And pictures. Did I mention that?

Good to hear you are okay. I've never been in your situation so all I can do is keep you and your family in my thoughts, that you stay safe and the damage is repaired quickly.

Glad you were all rescued safely. Ugh. I'm sorry about the mess you are going to have to deal with when you get back home.

Can I just say that I was watching the news and saw people being rescued in boats and was looking at all the kid's faces, obviously checking for yours.

Again, glad you are all safe. Stay dry.
