Hey all. As Shivers updated in the announcement post, I'm out right now due to the flooding in TN. I just got my internet back but will not be around a few days, maybe the week. Our house is okay, the flooding stopped about four houses down. Most our neighbourhood - including inlaws house - isn't though. Their house flooded halfway up, some houses to the gutters. One or two I think even to the roof.
This is round one of pictures. They're not separated by date so.. you know. I think they are in order though. Four or five pages, 50 a page. A few are from my doorstep, where you see the stop sign and stuff.. the rest are steve and k's house.. and the 'hood in general.
Hopefully nothing too personal in these, if you see something that perhaps shouldn't be public, lemme know. I've just been snapping away.
Please forward all stuff to Shivers for the time being. I have 40 PMs and 90 emails I've yet to go through from AF so.... yeah. It'll be Monday probably before I can even try to sort through those.
Every forum should have a Phases.
Damn....that sucks man. I was in NO to help clean up after Katrina so I know how horrible it is to go through flooding and how much damage it can cause. I hope everyone is OK first and foremost, and secondly I hope your inlaws have insurance to help out with the damage.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Members, want to make this place better, just ask the staff. Remember, the "No' is always there, you are just looking for the "Yes". and please read the guidelines, otherwise you may end up in Banlandia.
"Flood" is the first couple days that I posted before.
"Flood 3" is where we were end of Sunday
"Flood 2" is everything in between.
Taking less pictures now but a "4" should be up before too long. We're spraying under the house (last night and) tonight with mold spray then will re-insulate. under there. Pulled out all the crawlspace duct-work and insulation and put down a new moisture barrier mat day before yesterday.
I hurts But at any rate. Progress is being made.
The Following User Says Thank You to Phases For This Useful Post:
FEMA has surprised us all and sent them a check for the max amount of grant money, $29,900.
That'll cover a bit less than half of the (estimated) damage to the house itself. Which will work out to about a third.. or just under.. the total cost for them - assuming estimates for repairs and refurnishing the house are accurate.
(How often are they?)
But at any rate.. It sure helps!! Go FEMA.
What a crazy experience this has been so far. At this point we're waiting for the house to dry while working on (it's actually been a pain..) getting permits to rebuild. Just finished the electrical so that needs an inspection, too. Doing outside work. It's going pretty good. In fact, if you ignore the giant pile of debris in the front and the destoryed inside of the house, things almost look normal over there!
They've been staying with us and probably will be for a month or two.
Obviously this has taken a toll on my presence here. I'm still here takin' care of things but not so .. publicly around.. on the forums and in drama and stuff. I'm workin' it the best I can but clearly am a bit distracted.
Anyway. Hopefully an album of progress at the end of the week will be up.
Thanks for the support!
