Anticipating flood potential, we covered everything in plastic. With hurricane Irene gone, we went to assess the damages. It turned out that our foundation, the newly built floor system and the site in general, fared well during the storm. Irene did not hit Arlington/Northern VA super hard but it did dump a whole lot of rain on us. So, when Eric saw the site this morning, the only difference he saw from Friday was ” a little muddy.”
It really could have been a lot worse but we really got lucky.
Well, we can say that our house survived several earthquakes and a hurricane. All in the same week too!
