Flood damage

Well I have good and bad news.
My car its totally trashed, and Im pretty
certain it's even totaled.
Water can do major damage.

Here is the lower lot, at this time my car was
still safe. Thats his wing you see in the side pic.
This pic was taken around 6 pm when the finally
people were leaving work.

Right now its starting to look bad for him.
The waters are about 10 feet away at this time.
Thankfully, I wasn't there to see him like this,
around 2 pm I made the decision to leave.

And now the next morning still sitting in a
bed of slime mud. I dont even know how
high the water was but by the looks it was
over my dashboard.

It's nasty. Red mud covers the engine.

The water and mud soaked the inside.
I dont even know how high it was inside but my
drink holder is still full of water. My dash was too.
I spilled into my hands when I opened it.

This is my sister's truck, which
was also there.

This is the inside of the store. I can't imagine how long
this cleanup will take and when it will be over.
Or if the doors will even open again.
Right now its up in the air.

How depressing.

Wow girl, I'm so sorry. That is so rough. :( I can't even imagine what it's like being in a flood.

I hope everything works out and that you're able to get your car fixed, or a new one.

Oh Cathy. I am so sorry. I have been so busy and never even caught this post until you commented on my blog. I've seen on the news about the flooding in GA. Big hugs to you. And the insurance company should cover this if you have comprehensive insurance, keep fighting with them.
