Our refugee kids are back at their house....they have no electricity, no water, but the land line phone works. Nobody is sure about the natural gas yet. Mainly because when my daughter called to let me know she had gotten home ok she said she couldn't talk because she had to save the battery on her cell. My dil called a while ago asking me if I was supposed to call everyone. I told her I wasn't told to because she was going to be calling people. Anyway, my dil was pulling my leg because they had called her on the land line and had a chat. The water nearly got up into the pool and if it had been a little higher than that it would have gotten into the house, but the good news is that the roof leak that had been fixed right before all this happened didn't leak. YAY!
She did say there was a lot of damage down there and it will be a good long while before it is back to "normal".
Thanks to all of you who have followed along with this saga and prayed for her. It worked.
