Flood Aftermath

The water finished falling a while ago and the massive cleanup effort had started even before the river was back to normal. And it will indeed be a massive cleanup. Most of the float houses suffered some kind of damage with many of them floating away and being extremely damaged/destroyed. Driving down the streets of the Time Check neighborhood is a saddening experience. Along the sides of the road are piles of things that are too damaged to be of any use. Houses are battered and broken. Businesses are closed. Power still hasn’t been restored to some of these places.

But for all of the damage, the general mood of people is pretty good. People are working to rebuild and reopen. The owners of the float houses have a salvage crew working to recover what can be recovered. I don’t know the full extent of what is going on, but overall it seems pretty positive.
