Flooded bridge club

Iris called me last night to say there would be no game today.  Here’s why:

Notice everything is moved to the left of the club--the right side is very, very wet.  Herb showed up to help out.

Our building is the lowest one in the complex, and the one ground drain isn’t sufficient to handle a large storm.  This has happened before, though not as badly.  It will happen again, if they don’t make some structural changes in the drain system.

There doesn’t appear to be any significant damage.  The building maintenance crew got in after the rain stopped, extracted all the water they could, then set up large floor fans to complete the drying process.  Getting everything back in place and ship shape will take until Wednesday, it now seems. Although she expects to be open,  it might be wise to call before coming Wednesday morning .
