Disaster Strikes!

Last night, I wrote the blog entry but couldn't get the pictures to work so I had to wait to post it. Since that last entry, this is what happened to the halls on the bottom floor of our apartment complex.....








These are our friends (and us) doing clean-up. Some of the apartments were flooded pretty badly. Ours really didn't get much because we were elevated more than they, but we were still woken up to screaming and water rushing at like 11:30. Devin is convinced that the world is against him going to bed early....every time he tries to (cuz he wakes up at 6:00), something ALWAYS happens to keep him awake.

We are hoping we get compensated well enough for the damage and that they come in a little later looking for any mold that might have built up. I really feel bad for some of our neighbors though, because I have a feeling it's going to take a LOT of work to get the things fixed in each of their apartments--and to get the apartment complex to cooperate (they claim no responsibility for ANYTHING). At least we now have a good story for our kids someday and how "hard" our life was when we were first married. j/k

Floods are never fun! My grandma said I should come visit you since you are so close! Maybe for lunch sometime? I don't have your number or email. Could you send them my way...lfavshorty@Gmail.com
