Flooding at the Festival Building

Marilyn and I just got back from the festival building. Yes, it IS heading toward 2:00 a.m. -- and we've got a road trip planned for tomorrow. (I'm back dating this, so I'll have an entry for November 8, even though it's now the 9th.)

Anyway, I was just about to blog -- it was heading toward midnight -- when the phone rang. We grabbed it, afraid it might be sister Sue. There was an Out of Area ID on the phone. What the hell is up with THAT, by the way??? It was the fire department calling to tell us the building was FLOODING! So we both threw on clothes and took off.

Why is it always Marilyn who gets these calls? Good question! But it's been true for years and years. I told Marilyn, we're the guardians of the festival -- and that's how it is.

Anyway, the good news is that it was fine inside the building. No flooding in the basement (we've had it there before!!!) or anywhere else that I could see, thankfully. I was really worried about all the IT equipment, so it's a huge blessing! The flooding was outside. And there was a guy there tyurning off the water when we arrived. Such a relief.

So we're back home, and hopefully heading to bed soon.

We'd been watching the end of the movie This is 40." Oh well.

Shirley (from JSC Creations) had told us to call them between 6:00 and 10:00, so we tried around 8:00 and didn't reach them. She finally called us back at 11:30. So this was our night for late phone calls, I guess.

Marilyn was amused by the detailed instructions Shirley's husband gave her. Hopefully she's reasoned them all out.

Say, while we were gone, Henry (our cat) rope-a-doped all the way from downstairs up to the living room, where he ran the rope around the leg of the coffee table three times! What a guy!
