Shirley and George Rogers have lived in their Braintree ranch on Rte 12A for three-and-a-half decades. In all that time they've had water in their basement only once. Irene flooded their entire home to a depth of almost three feet, ruining seven rooms of furniture, appliances and the furnace. While on the outside their home looks almost untouched, like many others they've had to gut the property, removing carpeting, linoleum, underlayment, sheet rock, insulation, electrical outlets, and all the lower kitchen cabinets. Shirley is temporarily operating her 37-year daycare program from her daughter's home. "FEMA has promised $25,000," said George, Wednesday this week, adding, "They want us to raise our home four feet, but we don't have the money," (Herald / Bob Eddy)
