Wow, I am so sorry about all the damage! It must be difficult to throw so many things out. At least you are all safe. I hope the damage is fixed quickly.

Oh, my heart aches for you. I cannot imagine how you must feel. This would be a time for lots of hugs...My thoughts are with you and your family. XOXOXO

Thanks, Katie. Actually, the whole town was very lucky ... there was only one fatality (wish there were none). And that is pretty amazing, considering some of the dumb things people were doing.

Thanks, Ann. Actually, the best healing was getting back into the house and having hot water to take showers! And I also spent 45 minutes standing in my basement, watching my new front loading washing machine run through a cycle. Pretty sad, huh?

LOL!! No, it's not sad at all! It is a testament to needing normalcy! Watching the clothes go around, listening to the machine spin and hum...those are normal, everyday sights and sounds and you just wanted to re-orient yourself! I love it and probably would have done the same! XOXO
