yup, got dried up, and just got back from putting everything up again, cause we had a line like the last one heading our way.  got back here and the front had moved it further south.  so we sit and wait.  As far as damage, only to me, on the last day of clean up I had just a little more to do, forgot my standing rule that when fatiqued is when you quit.  So at 4:30 friday I managed to stick my hand into a running 36" exhaust fan.  Two hours latter I am out of the ER with 35 stitches. 

Reckon fema would add that bill onto the flood insurace claim?
