Flood. Fucking Ike. That is All.

weather….well….we’ve had some rain…::head desk::

Hurricane Ike jumped up and spanked the living shit out of us over the weekend.

We got 2 inches of water in our basement and are in the process of ripping up the carpeting now that the water has finally receded somewhat.  My in-laws weren’t so lucky. Their house is in the block south of the Little Cal river which broke it’s banks on Saturday and they were forced to evacuate. They are staing at their new condo in Highland, but it’s lacking a few things, like furniture, clothing pretty much ANYTHING.

Needless to say that we are more than a little exhausted from spending the past 72 hours wet vacuuming carpeting that will have to be ripped up anyway, and trying to salvage boxes of files that are probably gonna have to be thrown away.  I spent half the time sweating and soaked to the bone, the other half shell shocked and trying not to cry.  It’s so stupid. I know I have to be a grown up and just DEAL WITH IT. There will be plenty of time to cry later. If I even care at that point.

Bri and I are just DONE with this. We wish we could just cut our losses and pack up and move. I know this is not possible and merely us being foot stomping exhausted about the whole situation.
