As the Waters Recede

>> Sunday, June 22, 2008

Here in central Iowa we are seeing the flood waters recede and the devastation they have left. Up until this weekend you could drive Interstate 35/80 and see waters right up to the road. Covered by those waters were baseball fields, homes and businesses. As I drove by them yesterday I saw piles and piles of furniture, dry wall, carpeting and once treasured parts of every day life were. It is heartbreaking.

I honestly thank God that we only experienced land damage. I have no idea how people even decide where to begin that kind of disaster cleanup. I have recently heard about a company, WaterRestoration911, that can provide help and is covered by insurance (if you have flood insurance, that is). They have a 24 hour hotline and can usually arrive within 30 minutes.

If you don’t know where to begin, let people who do help you. And God be with you as you begin rebuilding from this mess.
