I thought I was pretty much done with this, but for those of you from outside the area, I thought you might like a glimpse of what we are going through.
I work in a midsize print shop. Our 145,000 Sq ft building happened to be just below the levy the broke on the Hackensack river.
There was about 24 inches of water through out the plant. By the time they let us in the water had receded, but we are still finding water everywhere. When you pull a phone jack out of the wall - water pours out. It's a little crazy.
We are getting things up and running pretty efficiently, however I just learned that the insurance company wants us to cut away any sheet rock walls from just above the waterline down. What a mess!
Here are a few images to give you an idea
I am so thankful that my dear Corinne suggested I get gas on Monday. My co-worker measured one at 6 tenths of a mile this morning.
I decided to pick up a few things at the grocery on the way home from work this morning and this is what I found.
It is entirely possible they took everything to a generator style fridge or something, but the place looked crazy - All refrigerated shelves, and freezer shelves are completely empty.
These are strange days.
