Update 1pm Tuesday :
Some really cool things and some hard things!
My one friend has come to be with my kids for a normal day in the condo while john and I assess house and pause to grieve together.
A new friend out this way offered her RV for us to use for a couple weeks (maybe more) for normalcy with our kids close to house!
Just now our van that (was submerged) we thought we aired it by ripping apart and letting it dry out and let water out.. just started shaking and flashing all the lights.. I drove it yesterday with kids because it seemed like no lights were flashing and it was doing OK.. today it crashed. I’m waiting on car insurance and while we thought we saved the car by putting on stilts it now stinks and had some water coming out of the exhaust.. I need to make a new claim there too. But for now it’s running and nothing is flashing.. so we do what we can!! Good news it’s now 70s in FL so windows can be down.
This feels like a big ask!
Does anyone have a truck we can use with a hitch and extended cab for our fam?! Our van was our tow vehicle and that’s done. The Prius I’m surprised isn’t fried but I guess I don’t regret lifting it when it started flooding! We will see what happens next because it smells and it’s been airing out!
NO RENTALS anywhere in FL right now everything was sent to FT Meyers and all the volunteers flying in to help. Thank you really but the “reg people need cars too!”
I don’t know how long insurance will take. but we will need to hitch up an RV to dump (sewage) every week as well. So a truck feels like a need. We might even be able to figure out how to pay for a hitch to be installed on a truck if that needs to be..
I’m doing Ok but treading water and realizing that surprises aren’t my fav thing right now!
Now that we know we have an RV option I feel like I can finally creat a list knowing we have a plan. .. and it’s ok to live day by day.. though I hate it SO much!
More later tonight for sure.. but if ya know of a truck.. just call or text
