Evacuated 2011 - Day 30 - July 21, 2011

It was a good day yesterday as far a flood sutff goes. Still no temporary power. Hopefully today we will have it installed so we can cut back on using the noisy generator. The neighbor across the street found a part of her basement collapsing. She has halted work on her house until a structural engineer can inspect it. This makes 17 basements in Eastwood Park with foundation problems that I know of. There could be more.
We met with the representatives, the advance guard you might say, for the "mud out" team with the Southern Baptist Church. The group will come in and remove all the debris from the basement, remove all the sheetrock from the walls and ceiling in the basement, power wash it and treat the basement with a mold repellant. They will also demo the sheetrock where needed on the main flor, remove kitchen cabinets and treat what is left with the mold stuff. The demo teams could be in twon as early as this weekend. We will be working on the garage to remove debris, sheetrock and insulation.
Relatives are planning on coming to town this weekend to cut down all the pine trees, lilac bushes and Japanese Lilac trees that have been killed by the flood waters.
We have settled into a routine..... much different than before. Our new routine includes a few hours a day, most days, working at the house. I think we are progressing slowly and we are farther than I thought we would be by this time
