This is taken from my Squirrel mommy’s blog.
In case you don’t know on the 18th of Feb a 3 or 4 story tall tree was twisted in half by a tornado and landed in my living room and kitchen.Both rooms got flooded so the house is unlivable.We didn’t have insurance so we couldn’t afford to repair the home and I don’t think it was even repairable.The red cross helped us for 3 days but after that the Gov did NOTHING to help us!If it weren’t for the help and kindness of friends and family we would have been homeless.We had to sleep in the DAMAGED house till we found a rent house because we had nowhere to go and no money! I had 9.00 to my name the day it happened.Then the sat after the 18th ANOTHER limb from another tree gave way from the high winds and poked through the roof of my art/work room and Winkel’s bedroom.I came home to find Wink hiding and trembling she was sooo scared,so we figured maybe that would be a good time to start moving into the rent house.Nobody 2,4 or even 8 legged was hurt and that is all that really matters.
We are doing ok though!
We are getting settled into the rent house.I have allot of my art/business stuff moved over here. I’m still trying to figure out what to do about the kiln.I had a separate shed outside of the destroyed house and since there is naturally no power turned on the home I can’t fire there.And the kiln is so large it takes a plug like you plug a drier into.So maybe once I make some more money I can afford to have a line run or SOMETHING.I was going to get power turned on back at the house just to use the kiln but I don’t think I can afford that.It’s been a ordeal with having to try and move things from one place to another.And it’s also been a pain because since the flooring the living room flooded really bad and the kitchen also flooded,there is issues of trying to salvage things,having to throw heavy stuff out,cut up wet carpets ect to try and stave off the mildew.Allot of stuff that didn’t even get rained on had to be thrown out because the humidity is so bad as it is here and with a wet living room it’s even worse.
It’s really exhausting some days having to go to the old house and try and throw out ruined things and try and save non-ruined stuff and then come to the rent house and find a darn place for it.
My cousin bought me a work desk yesterday so I will be able to get back to work soon so I can make some money.
