The county bldg codes guy/FEMA says our house is a 40-45% loss....seems like it'd be easier to "taer it down" and start from scratch, LOL...
I'll be at work tomorrow so I'll prob. get online then....for now, I get to go and do some more *bilge pumping*...the house was holding steady at about 3 inches of water until we got a temporary roof last night....
Rob, I can't believe you said that in a "worried about Gator" thread!!!
Oh wait, yes I can believe it...I know you. ;-)
Bill, sorry to hear about your place. Sounds like you've got a lot of visits to Home Depot/Loews in your future. Guess our conversation in the pool in San Antonio was kind of prophetic, unfortunately. ;-(
I'm glad to hear all of you are okay; at the same time, my heart goes out to people who lost relatives. I'm a college football fan - I heard that Florida State coach Bobby Bowden lost a grandson and an ex-son-in-law in the storm.
I hope everyone that lives in the path of this major storm is doing fine. 13 inches of rain is a lot of rain for 36 hours especially if you live by hills and how fast it has fallen plus type of soil and plants. Good luck everyone down there, I have been watching the weather channel and they have had pretty good coverage keeping people updated on what is happening down there. Dr. Steve Lyons is pretty busy right now... Not to long ago The Hurricane Center upgraded Ivan to a Category 5 storm, very very strong storm. *** Edited 9/9/2004 7:44:50 AM UTC by Maynard***
