We came home from our cabin three days early last week (smoky skies due to forest fires) to discover a major flood at our house! The water purifier had split, probably only a day or so after we left, so it had been spraying water for a few days. We couldn't believe the amount of damage one tiny crack could do! The temperature had been 40-45c for a few days and it was like walking into a steam bath when we came in the door. The hardwood flooring had all split, lifted and warped so parts of it were standing vertically in the floor. Our granddaughter's downstairs bedroom was an inch deep in water. Our finished walkout basement is about 80% destroyed and the upstairs about 50%. We've been told that it will be October at the earliest that we'll be able to get back into our house. Hubby and I spent last weekend packing up photos, scrapbooks, artwork, etc. everything sentimental that hasn't been ruined. Then the restoration people arrived on Monday to rip everything out. The basement is now down to the stud walls. I'm still in a state of shock and disbelief! I'm thankful, however, that we did come home three days early, I can't imagine how much worse it might have been.
