Grabbed a bucket and poked a hole in the ceiling, then grabbed towels, and tried to salvage the books in the bookcases as best we could---and turned off the water to the house.
This is the other side of the wall, which just happened to be wetter than the family room---not a lot of cooking, or anything going on around Chez Phillips until we get this taken care of---it's a mess, BUT the good news (and I am definitely a glass half full person) this happened when we were home, and it could have been so much worse, we are so blessed that it is contained in these areas, an easily fixed.
The blowers all left today and I can finally hear myself think---the heat from the dehumidifiers made the house about 90 degrees most of the time, and there was nowhere to escape, BUT it could have been so much worse.
Dr. C. and I are off to Italy on Thursday and we are counting our blessings it didn't happen after we had left. I'll be blogging and posting on my FB page while we are gone, so feel free to stop by and find out what wonderful things we are eating and drinking. Ciao!
