Ok, anyway I wish we'd have had the camera with us today because we had huge piles all over the driveway of clothes. A pile of pants - 77 to be exact. WHAT? 231 shirts of all kinds. WHAT? 32 Sweatshirts. 33 boxer briefs. Ugghhhh. Are you getting the picture?? Would have made a great photo op! I can't tell you what a huge relief it is to have that huge job done!
We went out to the house today to meet with the owner of LeMaster, our restoration company. What a nice, genuine man. We raved to him about his great employees, which they deserve. They are really working hard on our house. At this point, all the cabinets on the main floor have been removed. Downstairs I think they have some sheetrock out and are drying out the 2x4's.
It really is a blessing to see things moving along so quickly. I can't imagine how stressful this would be if it was moving at a snails pace. Our insurance company, which I think I will say is Travelers Insurance, has been absolutely wonderful, as well. They have advanced us money so we can purchase the things we need and are making sure LeMaster's has been paid so they can keep things moving along for us. We feel they have been perfectly fair in their dealings with us. This blog is really not for advertising but I felt that it has helped our family so much that I want to share it with you. If you live in MN and want to know our agent, let me know. We can't be more impressed.
I don't know if I ever gave the fire department credit but as long as I'm on a roll...they were so kind and compassionate to us. Ditto for the police who were there. Super helpful and understanding.
