A Week After The Storm

The sun is shining and the temperature is hot, hot, hot.  Humidity levels are extremely high and scheduled to remain so for the rest of the week.  If we get any rain, they say it won't be until at least Thursday.

All over the city, people are clearing out and drying out their basements.  Ripping up carpet. Sorting through the mess and taking inventories of what was damaged and will need to be replaced.

There was a special garbage pickup on Saturday specifically for waste generated by last Monday's storm.

Here's my friend Barb, the owner of Bizzy B, standing with the pile that is forming on their driveway while they wait for a skip to be delivered (there's a sudden shortage all over town, go figure!)

It's a mess, no doubt about it.

I must say, Barb looked a lot happier when I met her last summer than she looks standing in her driveway after the storm. I'm so glad I had the pleasure of her company back then - even if we did have a giant downpour one of the days we were @ Bizzy B!
