FEDERALSBURG -- With every step yesterday, brown water oozed out of the living room carpet of Jackie Sharpley's modest two-story home in this Eastern Shore town. Flies swarmed in a room that smelled like a wet wool sweater. "The whole downstairs completely has to be replaced because of mold and water damage." she said. "Everything just stinks. It stinks." Sharpley and her friend Vaughn Summers had fans roaring and the air conditioning turned as high as it would go as they tried to dry out their flooded home - hoping to take advantage of a narrow window between the weekend deluge and the renewed soaking predicted for today and the rest of the week.
