    Thanks Popeye! As you can see, the forum is never the same without you. Hope that your flooding and insurance issues are working out OK.

    EVERYTHING had to be moved out of the house, everything. All carpets and pads had to be removed. All walls, two feet up from the floor, had to be removed. Kitchen cabinets had to be removed. One entire wall and the ceiling above it had to be removed. And it all had to be done NOW! Industrial dehumidifiers and fans.

    Its amazing how much crap you can accumulate in 14 years. Tomorrow and Sunday I empty the garage. Just because.

    The insurance agent and his contractor fought with me about the gun vault. It is undamaged. No water got in. Besides, it has a concrete floor and steel plated, steel reinforced, concrete walls. I won the battle. I let them run a dehimidifier in there for two days.

    Leedi is in a nice hotel. I'm in a tent in the backyard, by choice. Dogs are stressed. They wanted to board them. Nope. We'll camp out in the back yard.

    My attendance will be spotty for another week, I suppose.

    Damn! Didn't realize it was that bad. Hopefully you get it taken care of and get back to normal soon.

    So very sorry that it was so bad but, uncomfortable as it is, it will resolve in time. Great that your gun vault is unscathed! And, it's good to have the "sage of the page" back if even only intermittently.

    Sounds just like dealing with hurricane damage, been there did that. The one plus for you is that you still have electricity, we went 3.5 weeks without. The utility company decide that since it was too dangerous for the meter readers they just billed us the same usage as the previous month. The one good thing is you as a person will be much stronger once it is all said and done.

    I'm curious, what did they want you to do with the vault?

    They wanted to empty it and check for water damage (mold) behind the steel walls. The cost of rebuilding it to its previous condition ended the conversation.

    My 11 year old dog is major stressed. The not-quite-two-year-old dog thinks its an adventure.

    Did a water pipe freeze and no one was there?
