Only three weeks on the job, and already I’m part of an office-wide adventure. In my head, it’s called Operation Soggy.
If you live near us, you probably woke in the middle of the night this past weekend to torrential rain and an electric light show that shook your house. It was fantastic. When I peeked out the window, the street was a single writhing river of silver and the shadowy trees were bending double under the wind. I grabbed some earplugs, covered my eyes against the lightening, and went back to sleep.
The next day, I learned that the awesome storm had caused some not-so-awesome flooding in our basement office.
All the rubber baseboards were removed and thrown in a pile.
They brought in an ARMY of green industrial fans.
Check out the water line outside!
For now, several of us are temporarily working from the sixth floor of the campus library as the sheet rock is replaced, soggy documents are rescued, and the army of green fans blow round the clock.
