Sandy Part 4

195 - This was taken several days after the storm. When we first went downstairs, the floor was a sold blanket of silt. Kind of surprising, it's not like beach sand. It's dried up quite a bit by the time this was taken. We had the airless woodstove roaring for a couple days by this time.

The sofa (fairly new) was originally against the wall.

197 - See the brass bar across the top of the stove insert? The water was nearly up to that. Just 3 or 4" shy.

221 - That's a new 70" LED tv covered with mud. Still works pretty good as a drying rack though so not a complete loss.

222 - We spread towels down during the day to walk on and hung them up to dry at night. After a few days between the stove and the towels, the floor was pretty dry.

The tv sat on top of the wooden chest (which is between 150 and 200 years old.

I hope it doesn't get warped {he said with a tear in his eye.}.

223 - We had two refrigerators and both were on the floor. In the background is a small upright freezer. It was tipped over too, though we got it back up with the help of Chris, another neighbor who stayed.

224 - See how the (no longer) upright is flush against the stove? It was blocking the doorway to upstairs so that when we wanted to pass through the doorway, we had to sit on the end of the upright and swing our legs up and over the stove. (Better than a Jack LaLaine workout. {grin})
