Drying Out After Hurricane Matthew

19 10 2016


Many of you have contacted me in response to the news that Fayetteville, NC was slammed with lots of high winds and rain about two weeks ago. Thankfully, the three properties hubby and I are responsible for suffered no damage. However, our former neighbors own a farm on the banks of the Little River. With torrential downpour all day Saturday and dam breakage up river, the water overflowed the banks and inched to higher ground, invading the buildings on their property.

Last week, hubby and I helped them sort, throw away what wasn’t salvageable, and clean what was worth keeping. Soaked textiles were hung on the line to dry out until the washing machine was free to run another load.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers for the victims of the flood!

Yes, the afghans were crocheted by Lisa’s mother.
