What Keeps me from Crafting? part 2

We've moved!  And I'm sorta mostly unpacked.  Feels great.  Then we get a text from our tenants in Idaho.  Our basement is flooding.  We're not talking moist carpet, we're talking flash flooding.  10 inches of water in one night.

(picture source:

I've been on the phone all day.  We don't have flood insurance.  Why would we?  We're nowhere near a river or lake. 
 The farmer that was flood irrigating says his insurance won't cover it.  My tenants gave us an 8-day notice that they
 will NOT be returning to the home.  I'm hopeful that it will all work out, but I'm terrified of the road I will have to take
 to get there.  

I must say, I have done some great projects since moving in.  I even took some pictures.  Unfortunately, because
of the events of the day, I haven't uploaded them to my computer.  But I do want you to know that I want to find joy
 and being creative brings joy so despite my life's stresses, when I do finally get off the phone, I will upload those pictures and show you what a couple bucks can get you.

In the meantime--anybody looking for an inexpensive home for rent in Rexburg, ID?  The upstairs is in great shape!
