Harvey Update - House and Car Flooded

September 8th, 2017 at 08:59 am

I am just now getting around to do a quick update.
I am inundated with news, social media, work, texts, calls. Everyone telling me what I need to do and giving advice. It is hard for me to keep up. People want to help but I don't know how. I don't like asking for help and I like to do things on my own and be independent.

Today is Day 14 for me and I finally got into the house! I opened all of the windows. There is still power even though it was shut off for awhile. It took some time to get the front door open! The refrigerator was toppled over. The water line outside measures 28inches and when I opened the garage it was 54 with the condensation to the ceiling.

In the house the mold is past my shoulders and I'm 5'4". Downstairs consists of living, dining, kitchen, 1/2 bath, garage and hall closet. All appliances.

We are staying at my moms now but I really don't want to be there for 6mths. Her house is in need of repairs and I just overall don't really like the living conditions but how can I swing a mortgage and rent elsewhere, right? Plus we are about 1/2 an hour from my house so I'm driving to three locations because I work downtown, mom lives in Houston and my place with DD1's work, DD2's school is in Katy.

For my 2013 Honda Civic they are giving me $10,443 and its totaled out. I have a few numbers from people at church that I'm going to call to see what they have available.

I have co workers and my stepdad that are coming tomorrow to demuck the house. This is all I have time to write for now but will update everyone later.

Please keep us in your prayers! It's going to be a long process.
