….ok!….late night planning and visiting with family here, and limited sketchy information from St Charles MO….we hit the sack around midnight, with plans to head out early this morning.
However, as you all well know, mornings for chronic pain patients is less than fun, and best intentions can seem impractical.
The good news, and straight from my nieces mouth, is that they have a ton of friends and helpful church members up there eager to help in cleanup. I believe someone came and got the children for them…and offered a place for them all to stay.
The house is not a total loss as far as the structure, ….only meaning that it is still standing, with very large trees on the roof, and and some of the roof missing. I have not seen pictures yet, but they say the area is a mess.
At this point she says there is absolutely no need for anyone to travel up there to help….they have plenty of it there already. Insurance agents have been contacted and will be there in a couple of days, as they work through the area hit.
From the sound of things and the descript
ion they gave of the damage….I'm guessing the house will have to be rebuilt. A total rebuild is not known at this time,... until the agents can get in there and access the damage to the structure.
The biggest blessing to come out of this, is that no one was hurt! They were very lucky!
So!…as it stands now, no trip is needed at this time…although we stand ready if the call comes in.
Thank you for your thoughtfulness and concern.
