The Flood: Hobby on Hold

Well, this weekend didn't go as planned.  "Acts of God" tend not too.  Chicago got a record amount of rain for a short period of time.  Just east of my house got over 7 inches in a matter of a couple of hours.  Well, all my backup pumps and generator couldn't do squat with the storm drains not having any room.  Hence a major flood in my basement.

should be my theme next year
I spent the weekend tearing up everything and more work to come.  At least things are dry.  Unfortunately among other things, this means my hobby is on hold as all my free time is going into remodeling the basement. 

Between now and the end of August, I do need to prep for Nova.  I will get my two tanks, infantry models and a few test games.  Really sucks that I won't get to put more time in.  Lucky for me my travel schedule should be pretty light for August for work.  I only have a day trip to Toronto on Wednesday for this week.

Stay tuned to an eventual hobby update!


  1. Ack, sorry to hear about the basement!! Best of luck on the remodeling.

    It sucks that upstate received all the rain, we didn't get squat here in southern Illinois.

  2. Sorry to hear about your bad luck, Brian. I hope you get it sorted out soon. Fingers crossed with the prep - it's amazing what you can get done with a really tough deadline. Really looking forward to what you come up with.

  3. Well you are painting pirates........
