Back with a quick update. I took these photos Friday afternoon and believe it or not these show vast improvements compared to the condition of the store on Wednesday. In my negligence, I failed to grab my camera that first day, but trust me, Nancy, her ardent supporters, and the restoration crew have made sweeping strides in cleaning everything up.
The damage in the front of the store is not as obvious as the rear of the store, but the smell of smoke hangs thick in the air and a hefty coating of soot and grime taint every surface.
This week the restoration crew is wiping down walls, removing the pegboard, addressing the clean-up, and performing the finishing touches to make the store ready for the next phase of it's resurrection.
