Hurricane Harvey

Friday, September 15, 2017

I haven't been able to get on my computer for 2 1/2 weeks because we had to evacuate our home because of Hurricane Harvey.
My Husband and I are alive and okay so that I am very thankful for. However we got around 14 inches of water in our home.
We lost a lot of our furniture, our carpet, and a lot of our paneling in our home. We had no flood insurance since we don't live in a flood zone.
So please pray that my Husband and I have the strength to get through this and that FEMA will give us some money to help replace the things we lost.
Thank you for your prayers.

    I want to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers for us. No we weren't affected my Nate at all. I hope we never see another Hurricane again or at least not another one like Harvey.
    We are slowly making progress on our home.
    We are putting insulation and Sheetrock back in now and if all goes okay my Nephew from Lufkin has a crew of men that are suppose to be coming next Saturday to help us finish with the insulation, Sheetrock, and nailing some paneling back on our walls.
    We will still have quite a bit to do after that but at least we are slowly making progress. If this crew does get here next Saturday we may actually be able to move back in in maybe a couple of weeks or less.
    So once again thank you all for your kind words and for your prayers.

    You are always so good at commenting on my feed, and I feel so bad that I did not know you were affected by Harvey. So sorry and will put you on my prayer list.
    Are you going to be affected by Nate? This is certainly the year to remember for catastrophic weather events. Let us know if you get any help from FEMA. I always wonder how people make out in such situations.
    I know NC has not fully recovered from Matthew last September.
    So sorry for your loss.

    You're in my prayers. We stayed dry, but so many lost so much. This is the time to help, pray and give back.

    Stay strong,
