Re: T.S. DENNIS visits TN


Oh, what a mess, Daryl.  I remember when my house flooded from a loose pipe,
the cleanup crew brought in huge turbo fans and dehumidifiers.  All the
windows had to be kept shut so the dehumidifiers wouldn't also draw outside
moisture.  The heat that built up was not so terribly bad because the turbo
fans kept the air moving, but they were so loud you couldn't hear yourself
think.  I slept outside in the Florida room that whole week.  I'm not trying
to compare my situation to what you're going through, just trying to relate.
I had it easy compared to your problem.  Good luck.

Kitty
