It's been a rough couple days for Den's daughter Kris and her husband Mike. Actually for their whole family.
Here's the email Kris sent out to their customers:
Dear Customers, Mike and I received a call at 6 AM this morning with news that a pipe had burst in our building. Unfortunately, a lot of water damage has taken place on our main floor and basement. Fortunately, a majority of our inventory is OK and the disaster crews are here now soaking up more than 800 gallons of water. Needless to say, we are in a mess, but I am confident that the experts will be able to take care of this in a timely and professional manner. I also have the very best employees in the world helping me right now. I love them all. Thank you for your understanding. We are hopeful that business will be back up and running first thing tomorrow morning! All My Best, Kris
And then again, this morning:
Dear Friends, Our shop will be closed again today due to flood damage. With the industrial strength fans going on the floors, fixtures out of place, and meeting with insurance adjusters, another day is needed. This has been one of those shop owner nightmares, but it will pass and I know we'll get through it. Thank you friends for all your encouragement. It has meant more than you know. I will keep you posted on the progress and update you on when we will be back up and running. All My Best, Kris
On a happier note, especially for me, look what Kim and Kris gave us for Christmas:
Isn't it beautiful?
I have been keeping it hidden in our bedroom for now to protect it from the aftermath of our own flood.
