FLASH FLOOD

tHIS IS WHAT i WOKE UP TO YESTERDAY MORNING.tHESE PICTURES WERE TAKEN OUT OF THE FRONT DOOR OF MY HOUSE. tHIS WAS ABOUT 8 O'CLOCK, SO i RUSHED TO GET DRESSED SO i COULD GET MY CAR OUT BEFORE IT FLOATED. i HAD TO WADE WATER UP TO MY KNEES TO GET TO THE CAR. tHANK GOODNESS IT STARTED RECEDING IN A COUPLE OF HOURS. mY HOUSE IS BUILT UP PRETTY HIGH-NOT ON A SLAB- SO EVERYTHING WAS O. K. EXCEPT FOR THE DOWNSTAIRS LAUNDRY WHICH IS AT GROUND LEVEL. iT HAD ABOUT 2 FEET OF WATER AND EVERYTHING THAT IS STORED THERE WAS FLOATING. nOW IT IS ALL TURNED UPSIDE DOWN AND JUST A MESS. tHE WASHER AND DRYER ARE PROBABLY DONE FOR-EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE UP A LIITLE BIT FROM THE GROUND LEVEL. tHE DRYER STARTED BUZZING, SO THE POWER HAD TO BE TURNED OFF DOWN THERE. aND OF COURSE i HAVE NO FLOOD INSURANCE, BECAUSE WHEN i BOUGHT THIS HOUSE i WAS TOLD WE WERE NOT IN A FLOOD ZONE- BLAH-BLAH BLAH. i WILL GET SOME NOW FOR SURE! So I guess I will be buying new appliances. I know I am lucky though, lots of houses were flooded inside and businesses too, so why am I SO DEPRESSED?
