We had water damage upstairs, but hey, we wanted to remove the carpet (previous owner had yippy dogs with incontinence) and repaint anyhow, and I'd been putting it off. Water damage downstairs, too, and I have a feeling it'll need a bigger repair there... oh, well. But we made it through, and yesterday was our first day with power! Which is great! I'll get back to this once I've finished regrouping (bought milk! bought pumpkins! had lamb stew, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, and pumpkin beer -- it's fall!) and have gotten the camera back out.
Thanks for all your good wishes!
