Here are some photos of my flood experience this week. As you can see from this first photo just about everything on my bookshelves on the back wall of my office got drenched.
As you can see soggy misery loves company. Here are my colleagues Karen, Gordon and Anne, all off us to some degree were affected by water in our offices. This is day one (April first) of the clean up.
I spent a lot of my time sorting through all my wet paperwork and tried to write down all the titles of stuff I will need to get new copies of.
As you can see here, the LIS (Division of Library and Information Services) Disaster Recovery Plan did not survive and will not recover - it too went to the dumpster with all the other soaking wet stuff.
On Friday morning I came in with a bleach solution and wiped everything down and anticipated that I would shortly be putting my office back together. Around 11am our building supervisor notified me that M&O had decided to rip out my ceiling and put in a new one. This meant I had to get everything out of my office by the end of the day. The ceiling replacement process will take 1 - 2 weeks. I am temporarily taking refuge in a library carrel and still need to see about getting my computer data and a phone. I think I will be working at home a bit more in the next few days.
