My iPhoto Library is suddenly empty!

Dec 19, 2013 3:24AM PST

I've had my iMac for two years, and have put HUNDREDS of photos in my iPhoto library...Today, I opened my library, and it is TOTALLY empty! I've been online with Apple support (great folks!), but they can't find the photos, either. Anyone else have this happen?

You can see this plea in the apple forums but just like all computers we backup what we can't lose.

Any time machine in the picture?
