Thanks you guys but we are incredibly fortunate. Just got the first bit of good news. Dad talked to the insurance guy this morning and he will be there within the next couple of days to evaluate and since it was a total loss, it looks like they are going to cut us a check right then for the coverage of the barn itself. We are going to spend the next few days taking inventory of everything that was destroyed or is ruined beyond recovery, including harness, tack, and everything else that was being stored in there. After we figure all that out, they will get us another check to cover the losses there too. That makes me feel much better about being able to get started on plans for a new barn without worrying about having to come up with $20,000-$30,000 out of pocket. Talk about finally being able to breathe a sigh of relief.
I really appreciate ya'lls concern and support, and it looks like everything is going to work out okay.
((((((Hugs)))))) Back to all of you too.
