Yesterday was interesting ...

... I wonder what today will bring?
Pipe bursts, Library closes for 6 hours

Frozen pipe floods Notre Dame library

All thing considered, we lucked out. As when we had the pipe break just over three years ago, this pipe burst at 9:00 a.m. on a work day, when most folks were here already and a speedy response was possible. If this ever happens at night, well, it's going to be ugly. As it is, there was a fair amount of damage to the items on the upper floors but the Special Collections materials were either moved or covered quickly enough to save them for any major harm.
