Wednesday, she hopes
This is Iris Saturday night:
This was Gail and Iris, considering the unbelievable string of disasters that have befallen DVBC:
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.
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:
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.
Merry Christmas, see you Wednesday.
