A Day in the Caretakers' Life - A Wild Storm

Buzz Glasky

By Buzz Glasky, Manager/Caretaker

It was a major storm! Starting on Friday, February 28, 2014, we had a wonderful and wild storm with high winds.

We woke up to find one door had been blown open by the wind, and rain was coming right into the house. And rain was coming under the doors in the living room.

We quickly closed the door and dried up the floor with towels. We placed more towels under the door to keep the water out but to no avail. When all of our towels were soaked, we thought a more efficient fix was in order.

We ran to the hardware store and purchased two 9' x 12' tarps and fixed them, via a rope, over the windows/doors and taped the bottom of the doors. It worked!

When the rain finally let up a bit, we attached the tarps with lag bolts. Now the tarps are rolled up and ready for the next rain.
