Nightmare On Maple Valley Street
When I stepped into the family room I thought I was in the middle of a nightmare! Part of the ceiling had collapsed. Without thinking of the risk involved, I ran upstairs, the floor was soaken wet. I traced the water to the guest bathroom where water was leaking out of the hose like a garden hose that was not connected to a faucet tightly. I turned off the water under the toilet. Then assessed the damage. I called Debra at work and told her to come home immediately. She called our homeowner insurance agency Farmers. They told her not to panic, that they can send a water restoration crew in that night to which they did. After a late night night we began to start work toward getting our house back to normal.
We were very lucky that many of our possessions were not damaged. We will need to replace flooring and walls, along with pipes, but we are in it for the long haul.
