I'm late to the conversation here too. I'm so sorry for your loss. I think I'd need to wait awhile too.
Good luck with your project Neyw. I hope it gets easier for you. With an impending hurricane off the coast of FL (Eric) I'm reminded at how the news carries stories of disasters for maybe a week, but the recovery takes much, much longer. I'm sure it was the same with your flooding. And if you're in a small town, you can get overlooked completely while they cover the bigger city, even if all they had was a power outage!
Take care Wren and Neysa!
