Well, made it through Fall Break ... unbroken. But today has been a different story. Here, my friends, is the scoop:
As a way to supplement my income, I work in the office of my apartment complex one day a week ... that day this week being today ... ( huh?) Anyway, I was awakened at 6:00 a.m. by a frantic knock on my door. Still in the darkness of breaking morning, I was not too keen on going to the door. Until, I realized it was my neighbor.
Their lower floor .... and my garage ... were flooding. Thus set in motion a series of calls that eventually ended with the fire department coming to the scene. Pipe broke somewhere. I'm OK, save for a few boxes with wet bottoms. My neighbors didn't fare as well.
Then another resident's alarms were going off. And storms hit the area ... much rain and wind. Then came a call from my Bro now in Fort Worth. He and his wife had just witnessed a small tornado passing thru'. I call Mom in Springfield ... she is disappointed that she is missing all the excitement.
It is now 10 hours later ... I have spent those entire 10 hours in the office attempting to bring calm to my neighborhood.
And how was your day?
