Where Ive been....

Haven't touched a computer in over 3 weeks, beside my phone, major flooding, my parents house got 5 feet on the main level, n the house I rented water was over the roof. So been homeless for around 4 weeks, I bought a house for my parents to live in, close tomorrow, so been just busting a*s at work.

We were fortunate enough to have time to get stuff out, I pulled, all the carpet, cabinets, doors, trim, furnace, water heater ect.

Wow dude. Sorry to hear all of this. You pulled that stuff before the flood or after?

Thats awesome of you to help your parents out like that. You and your family are in my prayers.

Pulled everything before, I built the house 2 years ago for them, so after work (I work minimum of 12 hour days), now starts the removing of all the dry wall, insulation ect. Then get rid of the mold and then rebuild it, its the only thing to do, winter is just around the corner...

Good lord man, you guys seemed to have the bad luck of catching the run off from here and Alberta. We lost about 1,000 acres to flood this year and my step dad's ranch an hour South in cattle country never got to seed and only has access to about 1/3 his pasture. I was hoping last year was going to be the only wet year . . . guess not.

Keep us updated, best of luck man! Wish I was closer and had more time to help if possible.
