Flooded family room cleanup cutting into Egg time

TjcoleyTjcoley Posts: 3,451
20 gallon aquarium broke at 3 AM Thursday morning, flooding the family room.  Spent hours wet vacuuming the standing water, Called insurance company, and ServPro was there within an hour, tearing up the floor and setting up fans and dehumidifiers.  Lost half the parquet floor in the family room and half the vinyl in the bathroom, and lost all the fish.  Waiting on the insurance estimate to get it fixed.  Going to be a fun weekend with family coming to visit and a lot of Egging planned.  Originally planned to cook in the cold tonight, but spent all evening with clean up and rearranging furniture.  Should have cooked the darn fish!

    Been there-done that. No more.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    Not good TJ. Hope it all turns out OK (repairing the damage that is). Are you planning on replacing the fish?

    No more fish unless they are 'en pappilotte"
