Baconton - "Believe it or not, I'm tired of cleaning," says Tammy Simmons. She's busy cleaning her apartment, bleaching walls and furniture since it got flooded last week.
She says, "That morning, we noticed it about 10, it was just coming out of the creek and within an hour it was coming this way, and then when it started to meet, I bet we had 30 minutes."
They lost clothes, furniture, a stereo system, and gained something new: mold and mildew, things she's trying hard to get rid of. Tammy says, "It's very tough, because any little germ will send us back to Atlanta, so for me, I'm extra careful."
Atlanta is where Tammy's 8-year old son, Anfernee is today. He's undergoing chemotherapy. "Because he has cancer I have to be sure that there are no germs," she says. "That's what I'm basically doing today. Cleaning and putting back stuff." And getting back to her life. Tammy adds, "You win some, you lose some. Ain't no sense crying over spilled milk." Or in this case, water.
Tammy Simmons plans to ask the Housing Authority if she can move to a different apartment to avoid being flooded again.
