After the flood, the laundry

Yes, the washer is going full tilt today cleaning up what I used to clean up my flooded basement yesterday. It takes a village because I couldn't have done it alone and it's a good thing my village includes the amazing neighbours, Heidi and Glenn, who came running without being asked and took charge.

But before the laundry, more visitors, at 5:00 a.m. this morning.

As there was four of them and not just one and as they were not the least bit fazed by my presence or that of my dog, I took to heart Ted Andrews' words on raccoon medicine. Masks and transformation. Delicious and delightful. Now, back to the laundry.

Such a great shot Kim, it looks like a painting!!

Sorry about the basement and all that laundry but how blessed to have such great neighbours who are friends and came to help without being is in times of crises that we discover how blessed we are! Three cheers for Heidi and Glenn!

goodness what a sleepless night! Sorry about the basement - have I missed something - why the flood? and yes i agree that it is only in moments like those that you find out what great friends and neighbours are like! (sorry terrible sentence - rushing a bit as I need to get back to something urgent in the garage!) love K x

Ouch~ What an ugly mess! The hurricane seems to have hit quite a number of my friends. Love the picture though!

Sorry that the water got the best of you and definitely grateful that you had such good help to cope. Let's hope for a dryer week in all senses of that phrase.
