I thought we were lucky enough to escape damage from the storms we've been lashed with here in Westchester. It rained a TON here today. I just went 2 towns over to pickup my son and saw that the house wasn't so lucky. Our house has been flooded very badly, again. The basement is under about 3 feet of water, including the garage. I have/had boxes stored there, tools, clothing, stairmaster and other miscellaneous personal effects. The brand new washer and dryer are now curbside junk. Not sure about the hot water heater but it's definitely under water. Looks like the water went high enough to hit the circuit board for the AC/Heating unit. The entire garage is under just as much water. My mini fridge is literally floating. Tons of Jordan's toys, more tools, cabinetry... All floating. The car, a 2001 Nissan Maxima, has received a lot of damage. The car is under water, and it has come up and above the brake and gas pedals. Wife is in tears and I have no idea what to say to her. Yes, there's insurance, so we should be covered for all the damage. Yes, although I'm not currently living there, I'm still very much a part of things. I have an obvious monetary interest, as my belongings are there and my name is still on the deed. But more importantly, because I still know that's my 'home', that's where my wife and son must live, and I won't consider it anything less than 'our home'. All of my love is still there. I was going to take pictures but didn't have my camera with me, and it's a bit sad to look at.
