Our apartment suffered flooding, last week.
Thankfully, no possession of ours was destroyed. The water came down from the fourth floor, all into the drywall and ceiling of our unit on the second floor; and because the walls were soaked, we had to evacuate with only a few hours of notice. And while the move was traumatic, (mostly for my spoiled princess of a kitty,) the most traumatizing thing for me was that while no large pieces of our furniture or electronics were drenched, the water coming from upstairs ran off the dining room light fixture and flooded the table. This means that the craft projects I was working on were saturated and ruined, AND ALSO MY MARKER WORKBOOK. So, the last few years worth of physical drawings are all bled and stained and deformed. I have to say, however, thanks to deviantART, almost all of the finished works are here, so while the hard copies are heartbreakingly mangled, there are digital copies.
Has anybody else experienced a similar trauma, where your hard work has been ravaged? I would love to share my pain, by sympathizing with yours!
