FLOOD WHAT NEXT?????????????????????????


AND THE HITS JUST KEEP ON COMING.

2010 HAS NOT BEEN GOOD TO ME. AFTER THREE DAYS OF HARD RAIN OUR 100 YEAR FLOOD PLAIN, WHICH HAS NOT FLOODED IN 209 YEARS DID,

I GOT UP WENT OUT BACK TO CHECK MY NEW TREES I PLANTED IN POTS FOR ARBOR DAY. THE CREEK AT THE BACK OF OUR PROPERTY ACREAGE, 1 ACRE FROM THE HOUSE WAS RUNNING HIGH, WENT INSIDE TO MAKE TEA. BAM BAM BAM, AT THE DOOR--FIREMAN SAID WE HAD 5 MINUTES TO GET OUT. DAM HAD OVER-FLOODED BY 7 FEET, I HAVE 4 STEPS TO THE PORCH. WATER WAS ON THE PORCH. HUSBAND BARELY GOT HIS BIG GMC TRUCK OUT AND UP THE HILL TWO BLOCKS, WHILE DAUGHTER AND I GRABBED THE BIRD AND STUFFED SOME CLOTHES IN A BAG--SHE REMEMBERED HER COMPUTER. A FIREMAN CARRIED ME THROUGH FOUR FEET OF WATER THROUGH THUNDERING RAIN. THE CUMBERLAND RIVER IN NASHVILLE WENT FROM 25 FEET TO 51 LAST NIGHT. STILL HASN'T CRESTED.

WE HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO GET INTO OUR SUB-DIVISION DUE TO WATER 8 INCHES OVER THE ROAD.

WE'RE AT A HOTEL FOR NOW. FLOOD INSURANCE PAYS 80%. ALL ON REIMBURSEMENT.
WE ARE SCREWED.

ANYWAY THIS COULD TAKE 60 DAYS OR MORE. UNLESS WHERE WE SETTLE HAS WIRELESS I'LL BE OFFLINE TILL THEN, OR NY HOUSE IS GUTTED AND REBUILT.
:SIGH:

I WILL MISS YOUR BLOGS IF NO CONNECTION AT NEW WEEKLY HOTEL.

GOING TO START SALVAGING IN A FEW HOURS. CAN'T SLEEP.

SO IF NOTHING FROM ME FOR A WHILE. I'M ALIVE JUST WITHOUT INTERNET. LET YOU KNOW TOMORROW NIGHT.

I THINK I WAS CURSED BY A HAITIAN VOODOO WOMAN. BEEN ALL DOWNHILL SINCE.

What can I say to you except, O.M.G!

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I think Mother Nature has a wicked sense of humor this year.

It doesn't feel like it now but, YOU WILL be strong. You have an inner strength that is evident by all that you have done selflessly for others. Now it's your turn to receive help.

Please take care and know that I am here to help. Just let me know how.

Oh god I am so, so, so sorry. That sucks. And all that good work you did, all that good karma you banked by going to Haiti and Chile and THIS is how you are rewarded?????

Fuzzy is right, you are a very strong person. I don't know if there is anything I can do, but please do not hesitate to ask.

((hugs))

If I worshipped a god, I'd be pretty pissed at him now if I were you.

Good luck, babes.

Oh my, I'm so sorry you are having such a horrible year.

It just seems so unfair after all you've been through.

Good luck to you and your family. I think it's time for some good things to start happening for you.

I saw the picture that Lauren posted on Facebook of your house. My heart is breaking for you. I hope you are able to get it sorted out and repaired quickly.
