Pray for Rollo
« on: September 02, 2021, 11:27:53 AM »
I'll let Charles speak for what happened to his room and system during the flooding in NY from Ida, but send him your good wishes, because nobody should have happen what he is going through right now.

Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you'll have to blow your nose.

THANK YOU. :-" Your heart felt comments are precious to me. Lost three pairs of speakers and most of my LPs. The entire room needs to be demolished up to 4 ft from floor. Floor removed as well. SEWAGE sucks. If just water a good drying with sewage another story.

Well, shit!

I know that you are well insured, but there are years invested in the LP's.  Those will be pigs to replace. 

I am so sorry for your losses...  😫

Wow, really sorry to hear this Charles. That's horrible!   :-&

My first thought reading the headline was a health issue. Thankfully it's not.

Oh man Charles, really sorry to hear this. Like another poster, I feared it was health related. Sadly I can relate, I truly feel for you.

A friend lost his whole house to a flood on a Texas river a few years back, but many of his lp's were still in his yard.  I cleaned some of them and salvaged about half with a soapy brush cleaning followed by an ultra sonic-- but if they are full of silt, be careful with the brushing.  If they're full of something else, they actually may clean up more easily.
When you're ready, make a list of your lost LP's.  If any are among my extra copies, I'll send them your way.
