Come Hell or High Water

Today is going to be fun... it is supposed to hit a high of 57F (about 14C), with torrential rains. There is quite a bit of snow still on the ground, but what really has me concerned is the fact that the body of water on the jobsite has been well-frozen for a couple of weeks, so I am concerned that the danger of flooding will be similar to that posed by a hurricane. Hurricane Irene flooded a couple of our buildings back in 2011, and it was no picnic dealing with that.

I advised my boss to have the guys on the day shift pile sandbags around a couple of basement doors which could be vulnerable to flooding. I don't have to be back on the job until midnight, and I sure hope that I won't have to deal with subaqueous conditions.
