We will have no trouble proving our loss to the satisfaction of our insurance company since the type of water/storm/drainage problem was insured to a maximum of $1000 and any one of the things they will take as proof had losses far greater than $1K. New furnace, new hot water heater. Don't know about the washer & dryer yet. Got a $7,500 quote on storm remediation services -- tearing out damaged/contaminated walls and then disinfecting the floors and walls. I'm hoping for a better price and will all another firm tomorrow from work. I'm too wiped out to try right now plus I don't know what time i'll be here tomorrow. We both have to go to work but whether we'll stay there all day remains to be seen. Plus I have a previously scheduled doctor's appointment.
Emotionally I'm doing fine and my biggest complaint is that I'm pissed off at the appliance repair department at Sears. We have Kenmore brand and I called to ask if I should expect to need to replace the washer and dryer. I got the same answer to every one of my questions -- "You'll have to ask your insurance adjuster." I wasn't asking them for warranty work, or asking who would fit the bill, I wanted to know if we need to haul the washer & dryer out of the basement along with everything else.
New furnace and water heater are scheduled for delivery on Friday. I suspect Gabe will work from home that day. Home being our house, not either of our home-away-from-homes, Gini's house (where we're sleeping) and work (where until the flood we spent more time than any other spot on the planet).
I see from the clock I've been typing for 15 minutes, so time for me to sign off. Miss you all.
