Flood Cleanup

After being forced to use a sssllloooowwww laptop for two months, we finally have reason to celebrate because our hi-speed internet on our regular computer was hooked up yesterday! What does this mean, you may ask? This means that I can easily access blogs, quickly post something on my own and download pictures - which, in turn, means that I will post more often! Things are looking bright! Sooooo, I thought I would post a few pics that I downloaded last night of the flood to give you a taste of what has been going on.

:Ah....memories of the old laundry room:
