Default Welp, I'm out of business...

...at least for awhile. Check this thread for the backstory: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f19/rain...eather-112016/

My house is standing in about three and a half feet of water right now. It rose to nearly five feet inside yesterday. The officials have been measuring and this is the 500 year flood... sux

Luckily, I have flood insurance on the house but nearly none of my neighbors did... I'll check back when I can but I don't have very good access to the Internet right now.

**EDIT**

Here is the photo from Saturday's paper... I look a little too happy in it, don't I?

Should I be scared that the moment I finished reading this post, the flood sirens in my neighborhood start going off? (We are also overdue for a huge flood)

Horrible news. At least you planed ahead. I hope the water resides soon so you can get back to brewing.

Good Luck Parker! Make sure you take all of the useful documents from your house. Take a minute to think about it!

I've had water issues in the past, but nothing like what you're going through. Here's to hoping that it starts receeding soon so you can get back in there and get things cleaned up.

Floods suck. Glad you have insurance, hope the brewing equipment survives.
