regent street evac.
a brief chronicle of a few days of work in 2003
Do folks say theres a lot of garbage on the web? Well I say dont put off till the day after tomorrow what you can do tomorrow. Wait just a second while these thumbnails load, then click on the pix for enlargements (some of which are quite detailed) (!) Be sure to check it out at 800x600 ...
|The day I took the pix there were 1.5 tons of stuff in the drive
|A bear here & there
|A sign to keep the vultures from ripping it apart (thanx Wendy)
|Im working upstairs
|The hall is stoic & tidy
|But the fridge inside #4 suggests something different
|Indeed 4 days of extractive evacuation & its still eye high
|And then theres those bottles & theres something in them
|Just hope I dont damage anything raking it to the floor
|The kitchen has been cleared
|The water is running - barely
|Its a beautiful place with lots of air
|& Ill fill 10 of these bags with emptied bottles before I go
|One more quick look at the living room ...
|But today is bathroom day. When I moved the fridge away from the doorway the stuff was piled against it chest high. It was so packed down it didnt collapse. It took a day to clear the doorway
|Today I can reach the things heaped up in the room
|Its piled up on the toilet & sink. Its piled high on the tub under the window. Excuse me a moment ...
|Thats better; about 20 bags of stuff taken out & the floor scraped & swept to the edge of the tub
|Theres still the rest of the stuff soaked & decomposing in the tub
|Oh yeah - Stachybotrus chartarum (atra) - its just bucketloads of toxic black slime mold like you find where theres extensive water damage
|& pardon me if this looks like a bag of, well
|Ill just have to take a break ...
|First thing the next day the slime mold is bagged, the tub is scraped & mopped
|Nice place actually
|You can hear the campanile thru the northerly window
|The trees harbour the cool air even during the summer sunset
|Maybe Ive seen just about enough of this
|What a long strange trip its been
