We've got hit last Sunday and flood water continued to rise and fall during the next 5 days. This used to be my drawing area. 


The rising water was the least of our worries. Our water line was busted during the flood and I need to cut off our water supply. The main valve was some 30 feet outside the house and the strong water current and heavy rains made it a very risky attempt.

The following night, an electrical outlet got shorted and burned which left us in the dark the whole evening while heavy rains continued to pour down and flood water rushed in again downstairs. 

The weather is clearing up now and I've got the water and electricity running again.  It will take sometime to get the house in order. We're fortunate to say the least, others have water up to their roofs.

Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes. God bless us all. :nod:

I'm glad it is good now. I had a friend who lost her studio from a tornado we had. It took awhile for her to clean-up and restock and she lost some work as well. She received lots of assistance.

Thank you for the link! I couldn't manage much this month; but if everyone helps out a little, it will build up. Thanks again for setting that up.

I was thinking, if it's possible to renew that donation page after the deadline is up, perhaps I could fit in a dozen or so ACEOs (as I'm doing for other various causes) during early August, with funds going toward this? Let me know if the fund-raiser hasn't reached its goal by then, and I'll see what I can come up with.

thanks you very much for expressing interest in this. Bleuie and his family will surely appreciate any help that you can extend. Our group in facebook really appreciate his talent, which is just unbelievable that is why we thought of doing this for him. I understand that you may not be able to do this at this time. However, you may probably encourage others to do so. You may show them the pictures that he has already shared. Just take note that he never really asked for it, we initiated it.

:( Those of us who have never experienced such tragedy can only imagine what you and your countrymen are going through in the Phillipines, friend. Once again, please stay safe and be careful of contaminated waters as you go through the cleanup and restoration process. Best wishes and prayers for you and all who are affected, Bleuie! :heart:
