    OMG I feel your pain! My old apartment flooded so many times I still wake up at night thinking “is this dripping water? Oh… it’s rain… Normal rain. Not a leaking pipe. Thank god!”

    Best of luck!

    oh yes, I know this sound! Might I suggest asking insurance about some serious giant professional dehumidifiers to help dry out everything to prevent mold? This was part of their plan when the toilet a few floors above us leaked for a few days over Christmas and got EVERYONE below.

    That’s terrible! I hope you get it dried out asap, that mold is no joke.

    Thanks, guys! It was a nightmare. For a couple of hours I thought our ceiling was going to cave in. But it didn’t, thank God. Today we assess the damage…

    It must’ve been something about the rain yesterday…2 coworkers had to run home due to roof leaks and another friend posted on Facebook that she had a roof leak! Hope it’s better now and that it isn’t too difficult to fix.

    I second the advice for a de humidifyer. I grew up in an apt that used to flood and the de humidifyer saved us a few times. It gets to be a little rank like an armpit without one.

    Glad it’s a bit better today! UGH!!

    Hope everything works out. I recently found your blog as a reference because I have my own relationship advice blog. I love your topics.

    I third the dehumidifier. We got one a few years ago when our roof was repaired, it saved everything. Even my clothes and shoes were getting moldy. We are damp enough here in GA that I have continued to use it on rainy days. My husbands bathroom was an add on and has a fan, but no hvac vent, so I use it after he takes a shower, It is also great for drying out bath toys and cell phones that are dropped in the toilet. (My husband did that yesterday. His is “water resistant”, but it still got in where the camera is and the speaker jack)
    Seriously, I have used it for like 100 things the kids “accidentally” got wet. Money well spent!

      e got one for our basement shortly after we moved in, so we moved it up to our apartment last night and have had it running all day. I think it’s helping a lot.
