Myra: How many inches of rain did you actually get? When I had water damage
here in Lex, we had 4" in one hour - 8 inches in just about 3 hours. It was
terrible - and the insurance company is still repairing the damage. Will
your homeowner's insurance help? Check it out - mine did REALLY well. 

Yep, I'm on this list - though not able to participate as much as I'd like
given my hectic schedule. However, I may soon be on this list exclusively
........considering I will probably get kicked off another gardening list
(which will remain nameless) very soon..........:) The day my posts go
under "review" is the day I sign off ANY list! :) :)
