The Flood - Yuck

So, I have been meaning to post the pics from the flooding we had last weekend. We woke up on Saturday morning (the 13th) to find that our lower level had been soak with sewer water (yuck). Here are some of those pics:










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...


And my upper 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!

I am so sorry, I so feel your pain!! I am still a bit scarred from our experience. I now refer to water as the necessary evil. I am really sorry that happened to you.
