So at 12:30 in the morning our new best friend Bill from ServePro came and installed a pump. He came back this morning with two industrial sized dehumidifiers and 5 huge fans. The place is a mess. I lost a trunk full of things I had been saving since middle school, old journals, pictures, books etc. My poor guitar was saturated as well. I have been an emotional wreck all day. I know I am extremely lucky compared to what so many other people around the world have had to deal with when it comes to personal loses but man does it still sting. I know they are just things but it hurts like hell. We have a lot of work cut out for us and having no one to watch our kids for us it is going to take triple the time. So much has to just be thrown out. I am emotionally and physically drained today. But everyone is safe and that is all that really matters.
My poor guitar and a floating box. This was my studio
Note the water mark on the blue trunk. Everything inside was soaked. My old journals are now just blobs of ink. I wonder if the monster G3 beside it will still work.
sigh . . . cracking open a beer now.
