Well today was interesting. We had people just stopping in asking questions. During the heavy rain yesterday and the night before a leak developed in the roof system at the office and some ceiling tiles fell. We had to clean that up. The man from the center came and disoered where the leak is located but cannot repair until the weather is better. We have waited 5 years for new carpet in the office and just got it two months ago. It of course got wet in that area as well as the chairs in the waiting area. We cannot turn on our open light as the water was running down the junction box where it plugs in.
Today we are working and two workers come in asking if our toilet is stopped up. The other lady went back and flushed,yep stopped up. He advised that this confirmed our whole building is effected. Something behind the building was overflowing and were not sure when they would have corrected.
Can you imagine women 8 hours drinking water and coffee and no toilet. He told us to go to the supermarket at the other end of the complex. Cold, windy and walk about a half a mile to a bathroom. We both had a great laugh about that one. When we left not repaired. Hope that does not overflow and get the carpet from that side of the office.
We are going down to freezing here tonight and cold tomorrow. I am going with Hubby to market in the morning, dressed to go into the office at noon. I just do not have really heavy clothes for too much cold here. I really layered today to keep warm. Hubby wanted to go buy me a heavy coat told him no. I had one that was around here for 15 years but just lost too much weight. Do not need to invest in something to be worn only a max of 10 days when it does get cold enough. I use my seat warmer in the car, layer the clothes. Any of course, the coldest thing is pumping gas on a cold windy day and I needed gas.
Hubby got up and he and Miss Coco road to the station so he could gas my car. So sweet. He has only been out of work for a week and he does not know what to do with himself. Miss Coco went with him to go cross town and see his sister.
