This photo was not taken at my mother's house, but it could have been.* The dry-and-clean people got to her house last night (Saturday) and set up nine blowers to start drying everything out. She had trouble getting to sleep with all the noise, but once she did, she slept fine.
When I called her today, she didn't realize the ringing noise she heard was the phone, because the fans are so loud and have been running so long. At any rate, the process has begun and she is okay. She told me she doesn't need me (or any of the other family members who have generously offered) to come down right now. I was already scheduled to visit in two weeks. It will be interesting to see what shape the house is in by then.
She never lost electrical power, which was a blessing. Besides the floors getting ruined by water, it sounds like the only other loss was an empty and battered storage shed in her back yard. It was on the property line with a neighbor, who had a shed of his own right up against hers. Both sheds washed away in the storm, into a creek bed at the back of the properties. There was nothing in my mother's shed, which she thinks is the reason that it washed away. She had not been able to find out anything from the neighbors about what they may have lost.
*The photo was taken at a house in Tyler, about nine miles from my mother.
