Water Water Everywhere & Saturday Indiana Casino and Poker Room Romp

The Water ...

I wish I could say that yesterday was a lovingly boring day and today I am already far into weekend mode. That is not the case, however, as my dreaded enemy, water, once again chose to do battle with me.

If there was ever any final confirmation we needed that the outdoor drainage problems in our subdivision extended to us, we now have it. We had a water disaster that came in through a main floor toilet and then soaked areas of our basement, particularly our storage room. I had to take the afternoon off work to help with recovery efforts. While we were fortunate to have probably lost a minimum of items to the water damage, it did make for a somewhat nasty afternoon of cleaning. Our backyard looked like an oceanfront beach with towel after towel after towel stretched out on the lawn to dry. Today we are mostly depending on a dehumidifier and a fan to begin bringing our basement back to normal.  Good news: no damage to my poker table.

The Poker Rooms ...

I am heading up to the Chicago suburbs tonight and plan to visit one, two, or three Indiana casinos with my brother on Saturday. Hey Ken P -- watch out for Illinois guys invading your turf! The casinos are the Blue Chip Casino in Michigan City, the Majestic Star in Gary, and Horseshoe Hammond. There is an outside chance that I will get to meet The Poker Meister while he is visiting relatives in the area, but it appears that our schedules might not match up. Can Horseshoe Hammond handle both me and the PM on the same day?

I hope your weekend is dry. Dry is good. Always.

The problem is sub-standard drainage pipes that were put in when the subdivision was built. We're going to have to call an excavating company to put in some new pipes. Ugh.
