While I was moaning about my visit to the dentist yesterday, my sister Texas's home, with her in it, was hit by a flash flood courtesy of Tropical Storm Hermine.

She had to be rescued via jet ski. She could have died. Everything in her home, from the floors up to a height of four feet, is going to have to be gutted down to the studs and redone. She's looking at weeks, if not months, in a residence hotel while the work is done.

Hang in there, sis. Better times are comin'. And if you need me to come down and help out with the appliance selection*, just give me a call.

*stainless steel. I'm just sayin'.

Sounds like a complete nightmare and I hope that she is OK.

Also hope she gets to go back home sooner rather than later!

Glad to hear she's ok and I hope it all gets worked for her soon!

I know it's hard to keep things in perspective at times, trust me, I know. Infact, am getting ready to blog about it now.

That friggin storm was crazy! So sorry to hear about your sister, but the best thing is that she got rescued. I sure hope it doesn't take that long to get her house back in shape. San Antonio got hit hard but soo many other towns and cities got it worse. My nieghbors down the road are still under two feet of water, they unfortuately live in a low spot.
