Just saw this. Glad you guys are okay.rubberneck wrote:We survived without flooding into house, right to door. No power tho, neighbors are pulling together and we get phone charges and eat at their place. Got leak under control and a bit of wet carpet was all that occured.
Unfortunately mike123230 has flooded. Seen his place on FB. If he pops in here, I'll be available to help him gut the place. Hit me up. No work until next week.
Volunteering and donations are key now. Anyone here or nearby, please see if you can assist.
Thanks for concern and messages over the last few days here and FB. We feel very grateful right now, so many are in dire circumstances.
Damn, that sucks for Mike! Best wishes to him and the fam. I wonder how much of the collection is left. So sorry man. (Gotta hear the full story- I've always been curious what folks would do regarding their prints during an emergency that could claim them all.)
My wife was out of town at a conference. They drove and got stranded coming back because all of the roads were flooded, falling apart, or closed. She should finally be here in a little bit. I can't wait.
I have to say, I'm very impressed with the way people are coming together to help out after the storm. I'm the point of contact for the non-profit I work at's Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, and my office phone has been getting hammered for the last few days. People everywhere from Phoenix to South Carolina have been donating time, supplies, food, and money, and just looking to help out and show support any way they can.
I had a little water in my truck and it made it stink like mildew. After a couple days of disinfecting and drying I'm happy to say that it's gone. fudge was hella stinky and I thought it might be there forever.
