Does it seem like the storms of late pack more of a punch?
It certainly did yesterday morning when the power went out and the rain poured from the sky. Forming lakes and rivers throughout the yard.
I’ve seen a lot of rain in my time, yes even several hurricanes, but this was something else. It was fast. It was furious. It was small and mighty.
When the rains and tornados moved out. The floods remained.
Bottom of our street.
Across the street from the bottom of our street. I’ve never seen water there before. Now, there is brown water river rafting.
The next street over from our house.
I felt very confident of our location. On a hill. Lucky us, until….
Sydney tells us there is water in her room. On the floor. Basically, under all her items we just moved and have not unpacked. Including piles of clothes on the floor. Aye yi yi.
It was a lot worse than I expected. Half the room was soaked. The water line on items went up as high as two inches.
The fast moving water down the hill rose enough above the foundation to take a little side splash into our house. Whoa!
Drying the carpet and hoping it dries well. Most homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flooding. And not sure if you are aware of our wedding expense coming up? Yeah, that one; 10-10-10. So dollars are few and far between for new carpet, but since my daughter and I are severly allergic to mold, we may have no choice.
It could have been worse. At least it was only half a room and not the whole house. At least her new furniture hadn’t been delivered yet, and most everything was in plastic tubs. A saving grace for sure.
Good-bye Hermine! Texas will not miss you.
