The Sewer Rat Speaketh
There's a community meeting at the end of the month. Sponsored by the police and fire departments who DIDN'T warn us this was going to happen, and the County Supervisor who offered us "debris boxes...." nearly A WEEK after the flood, when we were all well into our cleaning up process, and had hired our OWN boxes. I'm bringing tomatoes... not to mention some plastic boxes full of river/sewer water.
My San Anselmo friend said that the newspaper report that 25% of the businesses were up and running was wishful thinking. She said they must have been counting all the offices on the second floor. She's right--I went there and aside from the coffee shop, a few restaurants, and a few brave businesses... it's like a ghost town.
