Seems hard to believe ....

Well the flooding was WORSE, much worse than last time! Arthur and I were outside until right at 2 AM, we had been moving things around. Then we stood and chatted with our neighbors who were outside helping us, and checking on their homes. It's to dark to know much information for us. What we do know is our new refrigerator that was delivered on Monday is now a goner! The pool is a big muddy pond....and lots of stuff in the garage was underwater! We weren't prepared like before. And as I was writing the last blog post Arthur had gone to check the water. As I pushed publish he came back in our room and said it's already in the garage and deep, we have to move the cars now! The bigs moved furniture and tried to ready the house if it came in...it was 4 inches from the door this time. Tomorrow, or I guess I should say when it's daylight we'll know more.

Right now I just cannot help but be broken hearted for our neighbors who had just started the process of rebuilding ...our prayers remain with them. We praise the Lord for His hand of protection.

Oh my! That is so hard to believe! I'm so sorry about your new fridge! I'm guessing this only happened now because everything was still so saturated from the hurricane waters? I sure hope that all gets cleaned up again and that your home and family are safe.

Oh, Laura - - - I am glad it didn't get in the house - - - am praying it didn't. It's wearisome dealing with this again so soon, isn't it? Does flood insurance cover any of yours - - like replacing the refrigerator? Probably deductible cancels that out. Is the pool okay other than just needing cleaning?
