I'm also keeping my perspective on the flood; it is an opportunity to do a little remodeling, get some fresh paint, do a little purging, etc. Here are some photos, it's hard to get a perspective of the water in the dark but you will get an idea:
|This is our family room, looking from the kitchen|
|This is another view of the family room|
|One bathroom, minus the tile. We're still waiting to find out if the tub has to go|
|The view down the hall|
|What is left of the "Duck" room|
|You can now pass between the kids rooms, would have been cool when they were little :-)|
|The front of the house as the water was subsiding|
|The strength of the water pouring through the yard|
|The water was about 3 feet deep at the peak of the flooding; that is our mailbox|

I'm working to get back on track with working out; I went for a 4-mile really fun run last night to look at Christmas lights and then to dinner with friends.
On the 26th I will be participating in an event to support Operation Jack; it is 6 hour event, run a minimum of a 10k or as many miles as you can get in within a 6 hour window. I had been hoping to do 15-18 miles but I don't think I'm quite ready. My new goal is 13.1 but you never know what the day may hold. I'm really stepping out of my comfort zone for this event as non of my normal running buddies will be there; I sure hope to make some new friends and I know I am supporting an awesome cause.
Take care everyone!
