I'm in the complimentary "Business Office" of the hotel where we have a suite, so just a quick update.
The adjustor came yesterday, and he seems to be doing right by us, so now we can get things moving. Our friend Terry is a contractor and his company is going to fix the house. They can do everything. Someone is coming today to see what's what and we should have some idea of how long we have to be out of the house. I want to move back in as soon as it's safe.
If it will only be a week or so, as the adjustor thinks (not for all the work, but until it's basically livable), we will stay here in a suite and get free breakfast and dinner and watch too much TV, which for me is any TV at all. If it's going to be longer, some friends have offered us an empty condo in a very nice community on the river and we will move some of our furniture down there. It won't be worth it to move the furniture for a brief stay. We should know something today.
By some miracle, none of the furniture seems to be damaged. The only piece that even got very wet was my grandmother cedar chest which got a lot of water dumped on it, but it's a very sturdy piece of furniture.
So my goal today is to go to a couple of doctors' appointments (check-ups) and figure out how to get my clothes washed.
