I'm sure you guys have heard of the major troubles to Louisiana and Mississippi from Hurricane Isaac; in my neighborhood, it was slightly worse than Hurricane Gustav in 2008 (where water narrowly missed coming in my dio room) but not quite as bad as Katrina in 2005 (where both house and diorama room got water). I got about 14 inches of water this time into my dio room (close to 2 feet during Katrina, enough to get in the house "proper"), but in anticipation I raised any foamcore dioramas up onto tables. Notably the ROTJ Rebel meeting dio; in Katrina I foolishly left the Emperor's Throne Room on the floor and had to rebuild it. The 2 dios that were too big to raise were the Yavin hangar and Dagobah- both got water but had surprisingly little damage due to the materials used. The only real issue is the wet carpet, but I may try to wetvac it up instead of replacing it. Smells like Lake Pontchartrain in my room though!
