There's Noah's flood, and then there is ours.........

Help! We started with a calm, sunny Monday morning, when Masha passed by our 1940’s section and noticed water on the floor. We looked up - water was gushing through a long crack in the ceiling from the upstairs tenant. We rushed to cover everything in plastic but ½ of the women’s suits and many of the dresses were already drenched. Our new intern Kim helped Nora and me (Helen) protect everything. Masha is now writing up the dry-cleaning list, which by the extent of the damage, we will assume will turn out to be just a tad shorter than War & Peace and probably cost more than the price of a modest 1-bedroom NY co-op.
As our hanger & plastic covering supplier said to us today: "You have dust, you have floods...what's next? famine?" We have actors come in tomorrow for fittings. We will tell them to bring umbrellas.
