I personally think it might have been the Stanley Cup rain dance that actually turned into a rain dance and then just turned into rain. And a lot of it especially according to Nbc5's weather site...
But let's back up to Tuesday. We have a hump problem. It's serious too :) I'm talking about FLOORING what are YOU thinking?
There is a space between our kitchen and family room that had a rather large hump in the cement floor. We think it was something to do with the water line when the house was originally laid? Regardless- this is no bueno when we are working to lay hardwood floors.
Through Luis's dad, we found out you can sand cement. So sanding Luis did. However sanding of this proportion = dust. And not just a little dust. We are talking full fledged dust...
|Well this USED to be my kitchen... somewhere|
We waited until 6 am (7 AM their time) to call my parents to see if they had any tricks. No such luck for tricks- but with any call to my parents, it did a number on calming my nerves. This too shall pass.
We were very fortunately and so far - no major damage can be found. We are still waiting to see if the wood warps in the areas where water came in. Luis even cut into the drywall to ensure nothing was still wet which could later lead to rot and a much more expensive problem. Sans a hole in the wall, we are fine! And now working to ensure all future "storm of the century" can come and go without any issues from us.
|Floor is just dusty... bring on the Swifer!|
So here is hoping that this big crazy week is happening now so next week we can take a relaxing and calm vacation! :)
Hope everyone dried out by now- have a great weekend!
