Wednesday, she hopes

This is Iris Saturday night:

 

Smoke coming out of her ears

This was Gail and Iris, considering the unbelievable string of disasters that have befallen DVBC:

 

I think they are stunned.

Today, I got into the club to see what was happening.  All the furniture has been moved to the south side of the room, maintenance men have extracted as much water as possible and there are fans drying out the carpeting.  Tomorrow, they will bring in dehumidifiers to make the job go faster.

Interesting to see two disasters at once--the stacked furniture in front of the temporary wall.

Everything from the office area had to be moved

The property owner came by, and must have said he was sorry 12 times.  The drainage pipe behind the building, which was simply overloaded the last time, had clogged.  It is a 6 inch pipe, surely sufficient for the storm we had this weekend, but it had somehow become completely blocked.  You can see the high-water marks on the side of the building here:

 

The high water marks are about 10: above the grade level

All along the north side of our room.  I wonder why the tree is chained up?

Roto-rooter is coming Monday morning with a 6″ blade to make sure the pipe is completely open, and they will run a camera through the pipe to be certain there isn’t ground movement or some other problem.

The walls will be repaired in January–trying to get a contractor to start a job this week is futile.

The good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise (again), the club will re-open Wednesday morning.

 

This says it all

Merry Christmas, see you Wednesday.
