I have had a great week - just kidding. Even though I should be dealing with the basement before the mildew is an inch thick, I decided that I had to paint outside since it is actually sunny. The neighborhood is a mess! Now that the sun is out, the silt on the road is drying and sending clouds of dirt up into the air everytime a car goes by, there are rocks and trash from the flood everywhere. We had a rather festive day yesterday when the word came out that the president was going to visit our street - news crews and crowds were all over the place til about 5pm when everyone gave up and went home............the president didn't visit. Well, it's all up from here, back to work.
