Hey Dusty, glad to hear you mostly came through this Smiley It may not seem like much damage, but believe me, it does go down hill from there. and fast. We survived 3 hurricanes in a month, only losing some roofing, and minor damage. Like you, the house was full of water. Then the mold started growing. We had to have the whole house gutted to the framework, and everything inside got tossed because of it.
  Thank You CQ . You are right the mold is starting as we speak. I'v. been through many hurricanes Ike being the last one , one thing you cant forget is the smell / stink / crying of the little one's and old alike , the faces with the thousand yard stare  after a man finally stops for a moment and the way people stand together and just keep going  . Thanks for the good wishes Amigo ! ,,,DT

Hang in there Dusty, the rain will stop and things will dry out. We've been through a bunch of hurricanes living here in eastern NC for45 years. Last one was the worst. Took a year before we finally got back into the house after gutting, elevating 3 ft and new floors, walls and furniture. Breaks my heart to see so much misery and destruction but there are moments of bravery and heroism that show America at it's best.

Dusty,
I feel for you.  I've lost everything (material) in a house fire about 23 years ago.  Don't be to proud, and accept help.  This was the hardest thing for me to do...find humility.

Had the pleasure of meeting some Great folks yesterday from Tennessee. They saw us working on storm clean-up  and stoped ask where they were . My wife told them Port Arthur Tx.  Jefferson Co.  They proceded to hand out care packages and give up a few laughs and kind words , and went on thier way doing more relief work. So to the Great folks from Tennessee that made our day a bit easier . Thank You and God Bless You . ,,,,,DT

This region has been devastated  by Hurricane Harvey , most folk are sleeping on cots if they are lucky . Eating what is handed out from volentier relief workers / homeless and in a state of shock.  Flood waters have not receded much . Most roads are still flooded.  All we can do is keep on picking-up the pieces of whats left and pray that the storm does not make landfall on anyone . But it sure looks like we are about to get another round of natures rath. ,,,,DT

Overheard at the corral that firearms and ammunition are being confiscated in the US Virgin Islands and that the NRA is taking legal action.

Same thing happened at Great Slave Lake, NWT (wildfire) and High River, Alberta (catastrophic flooding). The rcmp broke into over 1500 homes, ransacking them looking for firearms and ammunition.

The local Det was sent elsewhere and outside members were brought in to do the dirty deed. This was the last straw that broke the bond of trust between Canadian gun owners and our once proud national police force.

The matter was officially whitewashed after a couple of inquiries, one by the rcmp investigating itself. No charges have been laid to date and no disciplinary action taken.
