Just about cleaned out

Here is what we were able to save from the Cellar:


And here is what we couldn’t save

That’s life I guess, but I can’t say enough about my Son’s friends who spent hours helping us out to clean this stuff out. My wife has allergies and the mold on that stuff would have knocked her flat.

The idea that you could get 5-6 teenagers to give us a Friday night and Saturday to help us clean out the cellar is simply amazing. If that’s not a blessing I’d like to know what is.

Update: Would you believe another one just showed up asking if we need anything? I guess all those dinners I cooked for them really made an impression.

Well the cellar is no longer floating…

…and we’ve cleaned out about half of the cellar, likely we will finish it tomorrow, it’s in pretty bad shape.

That’s going to be a most of the day affair tomorrow but with a fair sized crew it shouldn’t be an issue.

The actual damage isn’t so bad, we had some furnace work that needed doing but the price damage isn’t prohibitive. .

However there was one big scare when wife fell down the stairs. She is very sore and bruised but otherwise to the best of our knowledge unharmed. (I however lost a year of my life seeing it happen).

So blogging will be so so, tomorrow, but then again I didn’t expect to do much blogging today either but still managed to get a batch up.
