Storm Sally and Scott Novota

Anyone hear any reports from Scott Novota and his condition after storm Sally? He was right in Pensacola as I recall.

This is from Molly...
"Unfortunately, due to Hurricane Sally we will need to postpone the online sales of pumpkins. Our house took a beating and we will need to focus on it in the coming days. We hope to be in a position to start online sales next weekend. Keep your fingers crossed! Good news is that we are all OK. Good luck to everyone in Sallyís path. Cleanup is not fun!"

People:

No one got hurt we are all good!


House:

Just got power back.

Just got water back.

All my fences are gone. Still no internet or AC. Tree pancaked the condenser and crushed the duct work in more than a couple places in the roof.

A live oak with the trunk size of a 300 lbs furnace fell over into our house and breached the roof. Lots and lots of water with all that wind was scary but no one was hurt.

I have very serious structural damage to the house on two walls and the roof and a hole about the size of a VW bug that split the cross beams. We have moved everything out of those areas and sealed it off from the rest of the house. It is wet, stinky, and ripe with mold already.

4 large water oaks in my yard down but only two hit the house. I have them both cleared off now and I have become quite good at small engine repair, roof work, and could have been a decent lumberjack. I am also down about 10 pounds...so silver lining?


The Shop:

Amazingly little to no damage. Put some frax around the gather port and she coasted down without a hitch. I had emptied the pot pretty low leading into it and did not charge expecting a extended power loss. Boy did I get it.

Had a tree bounce off the back of the shop but it is all filled cinder blocks. Literally filled with river rock and cement. They did things a bit different 50 years ago when they built this place I think they expected a to have to use this place as a fort the way the built it. When I say bounce it really did no damage other than a little cosmetic work. Power and AC are back on at the shop and that is where I am now. Just a mess everywhere here. Not as bad as Ivan but still bad. More damage to my home this time around less damage to the shop. As Pete says no free lunch something was gonna get hit.

Long road ahead. Lots of work to do but everyone is ok and I can fix the rest.

Scott, I am contacting some disaster rebuilder friends and seeing if they are doing any work your way. They may be able to help a bit.

Scott, you may be able to get help from Fuller Center for Housing if there is an affiliate in your area or if you are in Bay county check with Rebuild Bay County. Hope some of these groups can help out.

We are all good. I demoed the rooms and tarped it to get the wet stuff out the last couple of days. Adjusters just left.

My father made me laugh have today when he said "What does not kill you sure will piss you off!". We are solidly in toss crap to the curb mode now and just whole sale chunking anything that we don't need....sort of a forced purge even if it was not damaged because we don't have the space really.

No need to pull from other resources we have good insurance, we are healthy/safe, and I have a good support system with family and friends.

Thanks for all you well wishes. Now, as soon as I can get some AC I will be right as rain...until them I am sleeping at the shop in the office with the AC/Internet/TV and my pinball machines. Life could get a lot worse...really I am lucky compared to some and I know it so I am thankful for that.

Cheers everyone have a good weekend.

At one point, we had a serious flood in the garage in Santa Fe and we filled a 55 gallon drum with water laced heavily with clorox and just dipped everything in it liberally electrical or not. Major rinse and changed the drum once.


It was remarkable how much of that stuff never mildewed and went on to work just fine when dried well.
