Last week, I had a flood in my kitchen. The hose that runs the water to my dishwasher came loose, and hot water was pouring out from underneath. Thankfully, the kids and I were home, and even though I had no idea how to turn the water off, I was able to throw down lots of towels to contain the water while Ryan ran and got the maintenance man.
I don't want to think about what would have happened if we were not home. Our vents for heat and A/C are on the floor, so the water would have filled the entire system I'm sure. then it would have ruined the bottoms of my couch and entertainment center. I don't even want to think about what it could have done to my books.
I learned how to turn the water off in the house, too, in case it happens again. I don't like how helpless I felt, and it was just for a few minutes. I can not imagine how people feel who lose everything in floods. It must be such a helpless feeling. The good news is that you can carry flood insurance, so you will have someone on your side who understands.
The only problem I had was having to wash every towel I own. I was lucky, and I know it.
