From Tom Roberts at Black Dog Books -- A Flood Sale

Over the holiday weekend I went into the BDB storage facility—namely the basement of our home—to find standing water. Storms from the hurricane effect.

For anyone that reads, collects or appreciates books, further description is pointless.

The water damaged not only parts of the home, but a portion of BDB stock as well as personal effects and some of the book collection.

While the water has now been removed the cleanup and salvaging goes on while the drying out continues.

In an attempt to aid in the financial recovery from our disaster, the following new releases are now marked down with flood sale prices.

    That is obviously a nightmare scenario. Sorry to hear that, Tom.

  2. I went through something similar about five years ago when we lost power for three days and without the sump pump working, we had four inches of water in the basement. Fortunately, Patrick and I put most of the books on shelving so only books on the lowest shelves were affected. Still...a nightmare.
