What a MESS!!!

So yesterday morning my youngest son comes upstairs while I am in a deep sleep and says... "Mom there is water pouring down out of the ceiling onto your computer". NOT a good sign! After having several neighbors come over to help me move desks, computers etc then we called a plumber to come out. He had to replace a pipe! Now I am sitting here at my kitchen table on my computer. This picture below is now what my ceiling looks like right above where my desk and computer used to be. It's amazing all the damage one little pipe breaking can cause! Thanks to my son I am set up to be able to use my computer at the kitchen table for now until we get my house in order. We have fans blowing and hope to soon be able to start replacing sheet rock etc. What a MESS!!

Yikes! What a headache that is. I hope it gets fixed up real quick.

Karen said...

Oh NO! That is awful. I think water messes are the WORST! We had a minor flood in our basement clean-out drain (from the kitchen) a few weeks ago. It was NOT fun. Good luck!

Lucy said...

That is horrible! Broken water pipes and backed up sewers have got to be the messiest ordeals.

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry to hear! Ironically, on Monday our basement flooded due to a pipe break, but we didn't sustain the type of damage you did. I hope everything gets fixed soon and stress free!

Oh gosh, it's like deja vu...my basement flooded and I had to move my computer upstairs. Now it's hooked up to a big tv in my husbands office and I sit in a leather lounge chair and type. I'm so glad to still have my computer!

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

Yuck! Good thing the computer is okay!

Brenda said...

When ut rains it pours. I am so sorry this had to happen. Good luck with cleaning up.

Ginger said...

There is nothing worse than water damage to deal with. Well, there is, but it seems the worst. lol.
I had a pipe in the attic attached to the swamp cooler break and the water came pouring down from the ceiling. I said who puts a swamp cooler pipe in the attic? I'd never seen that before.
You are lucky that your computer is still working after all that.I hope you are able to get it all repaired soon.
