Evacuate 2011 - Day 11 - July 2, 2011

Now starting day 11 of the evacuation. Some things are improving in the city. Residents in some evacuation zones that have no water on their lawns are allowed back into their homes. If they discover water in basement they need to get in touch with Xcel Energy to make sure power is off. Seminars are being conducted to teach people the sequence invovled in cleaning and repairing flooded basements. Anything electrical, including the wiring, will have to be replaced. So far, we have lined up dumpsters, electrician, clean up company, plumber for water heater and someone to replace both furnaces. Also have a generator, extension cords, trouble lights, waders and some supplies. I will need to get tools such as pry bars, crow bars, hammers, heavy duty rubber gloves and misc. for demolishion. From what I hear, the smell is quite unpleasant. Also have to get a tetnus shot prior to entering to start cleanup.
Broadway is now open daily from 7 am to 8 pm. No turning, stopping, pedestrians or bicycles allowed. This gives us 2 routes across the valley.
