25. Decided not to evac and got flooded.

Pipe to water heater broke somewhere. Maybe in the wall. We think under the slab because there was a heck of a lot of sand that blew out with the leak. Kitchen was fine at 9:15pm by 9:45pm it was flooded. Flooded into living room and front hallway before we could get it turned off.

Cannot get a plumber until Tuesday. Will have major restoration work; wall board, wood floor, baseboards. Sigh. But when I think of what others are going through......puts it all in perspective.

Keep thinking what would have happened if we had evacuated yesterday? House would be in total ruin. And we still could get flooded by Irma.
