and the fridge *was* stinky

Just a quick note today. Our power came on Wednesday night after about 72 hours without. We pretty much lost everything in the refrigerator, it was warm. The freezer was about as cold as our fridge should have been, so we lost most of that too. A heap of garbage and an expensive trip to the grocery store later . . . that problem is solved. Unfortunately, the crawlspace had about 10 inches of standing water in it, so we think our furnace was damaged. The last time our crawl flooded, it was $700 before our furnace would start. Of course, that was in the dead of winter. At least we have a month or so before it is vital we fix it.

*sigh*

But, on the bright side, we were not swept up by a tornado, right?
