We are in a hotel but I have gotten power back to my house. Gas, water and HVAC are still off.
The water pipe breaking actually put the fire out so I guess it was a good thing but water damage is like cancer.
Believe it or not I have a Internet, it is 100 degrees in my house as I type this. Will need to shutdown computer equipment to keep from overheating it.
As expected insurance companies suck...no surprise there. They are as slow as molasses. I have been acting a general contractor getting the utilities and stuff fixed while the restoration company (who have been great) rip my first floor apart.
The water storage I had has been great for keeping everyone hydrated and I had enough to help flush toilets for the last several days.
If you don't have a generator...get one.
If you don't have flashlights (several) throughout your house...get them
Before disaster strikes get yourself a good electrician, plumber and HVAC company so you know who to call and don't have to scramble looking in the phone book.
More to come...eventually...scheduled posts for the next couple of days.
