I am so sorry, you must be beat! Has it destroyed your foundation also, do you have to fix it now to be safe in the house? I am praying that it won't be as bad as it looks! I have had several floods in basements of homes that I've lived in. By nature and because of things like washing machines breaking while we were in church. It's not a pretty picture or an easy thing to see when all your stuff is destroyed by water! Again my heart goes out to you and your family!

Well the alot worse got here last night. We got a ton of rain and apparently where we had thought it was flooding from before that we fixed was the wrong place. Our whole basement is destroyed. The walls and the flooring has to come out and it will take thousands to get it ever where we could be able to put stuff back down there and have it not get destroyed when it rains.

We fought with it all last night and until almost 6am this morning, but it just was coming in faster than we could get it out. I carried everything that I could carry up to the top floor and took care of the kids in the process while he was sucking the water up with the shop-vac.

We keep telling ourselves that it could be alot worse still and at least it didn't burn down or float away like others have here recently in places. But it really is dishearting when you worked so hard to get it done and fixed up and sunk so much money into it, just to watch it all be destroyed in a matter of minutes.

It's just left me feeling kind of numb. emoticon

Thanks for all the prayers!! We managed to salvage most things. It destroyed the flooring in the room we were going to move my stepson in but it can be fixed. It definately could have been alot worse!

So again thank you all!

Good thoughts and prayers coming your way!
