The Flood

After a frantic summons from our cleaning person, we arrived at our studio on a Sunday night recently to find five feet of water in our basement, the result of a burst water pipe. Accessories of all kinds, lighting, antique tables, chairs, pottery, bolts of fabric, and much more, were now irreparably damaged. Early the following morning when most of the water was gone, we surveyed the wreckage, as did, thankfully, our insurance company. We’ll be reimbursed for the value of most of the pieces lost, but there were a number of items that I’ve had for years that were one of a kind. Ah well. On the plus side, no one was hurt, there was no lasting damage to the building, and we have an empty, uncluttered basement that I’ll do my best to fill up again. It’s a tough job, but I think I’m up to it.
