The Great Flood of 2016

By June 20, 2016Blog

On Tuesday morning we were surprised to find our shop had flooded. A 10″ pipe burst at the corner of our building and created a nice lake for 2 blocks.

Fortunately, not too much got damaged. We had a bunch of pieces ready to ship out in the above hallway, but fortunately they were on pallets and didn’t get wet. Only 2 offices got wet, Lorie’s and Sim’s. But most of our offices are on an elevated foundation, minus their’s, so they stayed dry.

Our parking lot and the Jackson street were 2-6 inches deep. Luckily our property manager responded quickly and had the pipe replaced by the end of the day. Below you can see the mangled pipe.

It’s hard to believe it, but we were back in business the next day, and only lost one day of work! Below is the same hallway later that evening. The flood dropped a ton (or several tons) of dirt, and that remains to be cleaned up. Thanks to all of our fans, family, friends, and coworkers for all the well wishes and help!

    Aging infrastructure and deferred maintenance can be so destructive and costly. I’ve had to deal with similar issues, but with aging sewer pipes in our 120 year old office building. Fortunately, I only had to deal with a little wet carpet and no real flooding like you had. I wish you all the best in getting everything cleaned up and back to normal.
