So, Jerry and Ernest worked most of the afternoon cleaning up the water and eventually pulling out all of the carpet, but most everything else was OK.
Now, while I was getting ready for church on Sunday, our neighbor came by to ask if we had started flooding again. I said no, but decided to have Ernest check just in case. Well, sure enough, as we watched our toilet began to overflow. Slowly at first, but then it began to look like this...
Yes, that is sewage mixed in with the flood water. It went on like this for several hours. And soon, my lower level looked like this...
In the end, most of the furniture was lost, but all the "stuff" was OK. I am so thankful to everyone from church who came to help us out - Jerry and Jeni, Geri and her boys, Mike, Fred, the Morecrafts, the Barkers. Thank you all so much!

Here are some pictures I took early on Tuesday morning of our neighborhood as we were all coming out to assess the damage. It was the most amazing thing to see these trees completely torn out of the ground.
