In Shambles...

I hate rain, I have always hated rain. Now more so...
For the first time in 23 years, our house was flooded last Saturday September 26, 2009 by typhoon Ondoy. Our whole ground floor was submerged in flood. Everything got ruined the food, appliances, clothes, shoes, and my cookbooks. When I think of all the time I put taking care of those books and in a few minutes there are all gone. I'm not even sure if I could still use them once they got dry. I could cry when I think of it. So I try to avoid doing that and just be thankful that my brother who got stuck inside the house is safe. These pictures are how chaotc my house looks after the flood is gone.

  1. I am so sorry that you had to go through this. I used to live in Guam and I know firsthand how devastating a typhoon can be. I know it will take time for everything to get back to normal but please take care.

  5. Sorry to hear about the destruction, but at the same time glad you and your family are safe. I think the cookbooks can stand to be dried if you want to preserve the precious ones.
