Default my mess in my chateu

Folks I have a mess in my home. I will start from the beginning.

Thurday morn about 12-30 after mid night my dau, Celeste, got out of bed, put her feet on the floor and stepped in about 2 inches of water. She yelled loudly waking me up.

Inspection of the house we found the entire house was flooded. Call the resoration company. They arrived at 2 am thursday. They began sucking and sucked til 10 AM. They placed about 34 fans and dehumidifiers. They removed all the baseboards and placed holes into the sheet rock.

The fans have going and will Until monday.

We will be staying Merriot Courtyard until Monday then hope to move into and apartment.

Insurance adjustor was out on Friday morn at 10 am We will not be able to come home for many days.

Monday they will pack up all our stuff and put in a pod and garage.

I have purchased a new washer and dryer. Oh I have not told you what happened. The washer malfunctioned and sent the water over the lid and flooded the whole house.

I bought new carpet and will be ready to install when time comes.

Better send this before it is deleted.

So sorry to hear this happened to you Ray. Good news is that you are covered by the insurance.

See Paul, even restoration companies suck, but only for a little while!

Ray, I am glad to hear that things are under control. I am so sorry that this ever had to happen at all. You take care and know that I am thinking about all of you and sending prayers.

Ray, so sorry to hear of your misfortune.

I certainly hope you have a good insurance company.

We had a major disaster while we were in Cambodia, a fire in our bedroom at home. The insurance company treated us so well and took care of everything!

Oh Ray, so sorry this has happened, what an inconvenience it must be, but at least you have a place to stay and good insurance coverage.
Hope you are back home soon!

I'm sorry to hear about your "flood", Ray! Hopefully everything will be taken care of by your insurance and you can move back home soon.

As my Mom used to say, "if it's not one thing, it's another" !

Ray, I feel bad that you had to face such an inconvenient situation.
It's a good thing that you have the proper insurance.

I hope that you get back home soon.

Ray, what an inconvenience for your family, and, it's never a good time to have all this going on. I hope it all gets back together real soon.

Ray,

I am nothing short of stunned. I have spent the night in your gorgeous home and I just can't believe this happened to you. I know, it happens, but I still just can't believe it!

Thank God you have Celeste and your other daughter to help you and help with clean up.

Sure, insurance covers the damage itself but it doesn't cover the trauma or the inconvenience, especially to one as special as are you (at least to me).

Please keep up your morale as things, I assure you, will be as good if not better than new.

Nevertheless my heart goes out to you as I consider you the Grandfather I never had....plus you're a lot more fun than most grandfathers!

My prayers are with you and I shall call you.

Much love,

TDH
