From our apartment complex management:
Needless to say, my building is neither 4, 10 nor 13. And forget water.
On a related note: we had movers come and shift all our possessions into the (one-car) garage on Saturday. It took a depressingly short time, and there’s still plenty of space. Now building management can dry the place out and replace carpets etc. , which they assured me [eyecross] would take place soon.
But as I paid the movers with some of the money y’all sent to me, I said a quiet thank-you. (And yes, I will eventually get it back from the insurance, but I needed it right then, and you guys made it possible.)
Best news of all: my books were in perfect shape, untouched by the water and the resulting humidity.
And in other news: normal blogging service should resume tomorrow with the usual mixture of guns, rants, booze, invective and boobs. Try to contain your excitement.
