Fires and Floods

Thank goodness my printer was able to save all the originals of my 33 manuals. It is certainly a miracle as he (my printer) lost everything and the building is a total loss. He is typical New England tough and has already started to make a comeback and will be able to continue to print my manuals.

Now the flood at the training center snow and ice on the roof with the rain we had the other day were not a good mix. Water came down into the center and all over equipment and materials we use for training. I am getting to old for this stuff. Well we are working to clean up and will be ready to start a week long class on Monday. We had cleared snow from the roof but it was the ice under the snow which caused the shingles to lift and then it got warm for one day and the ice melted and down came the water. The roof has held for two days and with 40 degree temps tomorrow will be a good test to see if we have conquered the beast.

    Training center is dry today. Roof has been cleared. By the way it is a slanted roof not flat. We will see what the next few days bring with temperatures slated to go up to 40 degrees.
