    So very sorry. I live around Fort Smith which is having catastrophic flooding.
    Oklahoma also and Missouri.
    Prayers for you and all affected. Expected storms and more rain today.
    I am high and dry but so many have lost so very much and many do not have flood insurance.

    Water is so destructive.
    Hope you are able to keep damage at minimum.

    I have it down to a dribble ...It is seeping up through the basement floor. My poor neighbors though their basement filled up.

    I am so sorry. I hope you are safe and everything you have and that insurance will cover any damage you have.

    Oh how horrible... I hope it won't get worse! We had it in the basement once, but the neighbour next door got it in his flat.

    No thank goodness my inventory is ok. I guess you never know how many things you save that really don't matter. I am getting rid of allot of stuff that I am actually glad to see go. Still trying to dry out though
    Thanks you guys.
    Metro Retro when you reply I see that cutest kitty talking to me. It is so funny how she matches your personality. lol

    So sorry. Hope you are coming along in getting it all back to where you want it all to be.

    I was getting ready for a Hurricane once and basically put my life in 2 plastic tubs to get ready.

    It all turned out right but that was sure an eyeopener relating to your things comment. My best.

    I am just finished sorting and rearranging and things look better than they ever did. I guess I needed a good swamping out. lol

    Haha. Goodness. Silver lining I guess.
    I do hope you did not lose precious items.
    New beginnings are good at times. My best.

    I lucked out because the water filtered up and through cracks in the concret it was clear. My poor neighbors got a layer of fine silt over everything.

    So glad to hear that you didn't suffer any significant losses of your vintage!

    Reorganizing is no fun, but it always feels great, once it's done. :)

    Glad your vintage was OK and that you had relatively minor damage. Not fun though!
