My wife arrived 3/3 and was greeted by ongoing flooding from a broken hot water supply line in the master bath. I talked her through shutting off the water and the boiler overheated and the smoke set off all the fire alarms just as our broker arrived with her husband a fire captain in Missoula.
I flew up to Spokane on Saturday where my wife picked me up and we drove back to Stevensville, MT. I punched in a couple vacation days plus some work days, intending to fly back 3/15. On Monday, my employer sent out a notice that we were all work from home for 14 days starting on Tuesday due to Carona Virus. That has been extended indefinitely. So I’m up in Montana, working from home. My son says it’s crazy hysteria down in SoCal, so don’t bother to come home until it’s over. Things are pretty normal up here, though Missoula Costco did impose a two pack limit on toilet paper.
The water damage is covered by insurance. They are gutting the south wing of the home which contains the master bed and bath plus laundry room. My wife is getting that remodel she planned a lot sooner than expected. Two tankless water heaters have already been installed along with a Moen Flo leak detection system.
I talked with the fly shop in Hamilton and they are already getting fish on Skwalas. Have the day off today, but snow and wind are coming in. Should warm up middle of next week and restart the Skwala invasion.
