Day Zero

There was no knowing that the combination of snow the weekend before and the heavy rains Tuesday night would lead to a damaged dam, a flooded town, and many businesses left having to rebuild.  

Wednesday, January 10th, 2024, we were notified at 6am by our landlord, Mark, that water had entered Busy Bees' Play Hive.  When we arrived only minutes later, it was clear that there was no stopping the river from making its way into the building.  The doors were already stressed and leaking, the sandbags weren't enough, it was going to be a rough day.  In that moment the only thing that could be done was unplug everything and hope for the best.  From there, Keith went next door to help Mark with his side of the building (Dominos), and the river rose higher...


6:30am, the water crested our own brick facade.  

The water outside was always higher than what was in the building, there was a chance of the damage inside not being as bad as the water level outside, until 8:30.


The 8' wide window in our Party Room was no longer able to hold back the pressure of the higher water levels outside, and the window broke and let the river in, and the toys out.
