If you have experienced water in your home after the recent floods, you will want to be sure that the moisture content of the wood in your home is less than 15% before new drywall; paneling or other coverings are installed.  Our office has a moisture meter you can check out to use to determine what the moisture level is in your home.  Contact us at 402-821-2151 to check out the meter.

Natural disasters, such as the recent severe storms and flooding in Nebraska, often lead to extreme stress for families.  It is common for people to feel irritable, anxious, helpless and overwhelmed.  Tempers may flare during times of stress, affecting relationships in the family. You may feel that you are losing not only material things, but also the support of your family as well.

Problems between couples are typical during times of great stress. No two people are likely to have the same reaction to a situation, so it is not surprising that tension may result from their differing reactions.
