Remember when Biff said "I HATE MANURE!!!"?

It isn't Minot or anything like that, but it is irritating. Last week we had a fair bit of snow. Our neighbors to the north up in Washington are still getting it. But here, it suddenly turned to warm rain. We got over 4" and it was 51o this morning. Can you say "rapid snowmelt?" Sure you can. Parts of town are cut off. Couple of mudslides. Stepdaughter can't get to her house. Water came up about 2" inside the signs-n-engraving shop. Nothing really hurt by it. Just messy.
The newest freakin' computer that we've only had since the end of December. I wanted to go to Fry's and build a PC. But boss man thought sending me to Fry's with the company Visa card might be, oh, just a bit of a risk. So we bought one off-the-shelf from a place here in town. We thought the water had peaked before it made it inside the shop, so no effort was made to lift the new PC from its place ON THE [BLEEP]ing FLOOR! Came in this morning, and could tell from the ring-around-the-bathbub high water mark that water did indeed make it to the PC. Took the cover off the side, and was saddened to find that THE MORON WHO ASSEMBLED IT PUT THE HARD DRIVE IN THE VERY LOWEST BAY. No other components got wet. If the HD had been in ANY of the other half-dozen or so bays, it too would have stayed dry. BUT NO. Since we've only had it a couple weeks, we haven't even done a FREEKIN' BACKUP. All we have is the klunky old HD out of the old PC with QuickBooks files that are now nearly a month out-of-date.
I HATE FLOODWATER!!
