Glad things are getting dried out. Will your insurance cover any of your repairs? Did you have good flood insurance? I know it has been tough for the folks here who lost their homes in the fire this summer to make all of the necessary insurance claims. Good luck with dealing with all of the paperwork. I'm so glad that you are well and things are looking up.

So nice to see you here MM

Hope everything dries out soon for you and that you can find the cheaper option

Thank you everyone. Quite honestly I don't know how many bad things I can handle. I am reaching my limit.

BTW ate the Red Cross food

No. FEMA said to homeowners insurance, homeowners insurance said they don't cover flood so we are S.O.L.!

You deserve a break, Ms.M. I'm so hoping you can get one soon, and that things can finally be positive.

My heart goes out ot you and your family. I am sure you have heard it said before, "God doesn't give us any more than we can handle." Prayers are going out for you. You have gone though the worst, now comes the cleanup and better times. Hang in there we are all sending prayers out for you.

When I was living in Aransas Pass, Texas the eye of a hurrican went right over the town. The back side of the storm was worst than the first. There wasn't a building or home left in the whole town that hadn't been destroyed or severly damaged. We were sleeping in the streets in sleeping bags. Water trucks came in everyday. The Red Cross passed out meals three tiimes a day. The Federal goverment brought in hundrends of mobile homes. Today, that sleepy little fishing village is a major city in southern Texas. Every building that wasn't torn down was either repaired or rebuilt.

Sending a few of these your way. You need them right now.
