What are the odds?
Every house on the block, shared with my shore house has damage, but mine.
Note the water line on the outside shower and hot water heater. That’s about ¾ of the way up the black cinder block foundation.
If it reached the top of the black, storm water would have gotten in to the porch, dining room, three bedrooms, bathroom, and one BRAND NEW kitchen.
Very lucky! Very Providential.
I wish everyone hit by Sandy was this lucky. Sadly it’s not so. Some lost everything. Nothing down the shore will ever be the same. Now I have had a little taste of what the folks in Katrina have felt.
Scuttlebutt was that FEMA was going to stiff those with flood insurance if they were part-time resident. Not a lot of happy people with that assertion.
