Today I awoke to a flood at 6:30am. The city was called, 311, and they promptly came and did as little as possible. Then the kind and hard working superintendent came and took over, we worked all day hauling things around, trying to figure out where the water came from and why. This is during an otherwise beautiful day, and people came to check out the shop. Now we have a crew taking apart the walls, as everything that came in contact with water is contaminated, so, my rug, my mattresses, records, stereo, wood pieces,sleeping bag, art... etc.
All of my valuable records and other items are fine, and brought upstairs, balancing on 2x4 bridges, then organized into an attractive garage sale style. I do better in the next two days than usual...!?
The clean up crew arrives, hired privately through the landlord. They had to take apart the walls and sterilize everything. Everything is covered in plastic and huge fans are brought in, along with a massive dehumidifier that has to be on for at least 4 days.
95% of my soundtracks & various comps are destroyed.
