We were called and warned that the drive to Afton this morning might be a challenge, with heavy rain, heavy wind, and hail. We lucked out, however, and our trip there was a bit soggy but uneventful. Not so when we got there, however. For the first time, we had a minor a flood in the main room, not the car showrooms which are regularly drenched, but "my" room, with all the Route 66 paraphernalia. This has never happened before, but David and Marly, who were there working in the work room, said that at the height of the storm the wind was blowing rain right through the window frames. Yikes! It wasn't terribly serious, but Ron M. had to drive to the nearest dollar store and purchase a pile of cheap towels for the clean up, then was his usual helpful self in sopping up the mess. The back rooms could be cleaned up with our new Shop Vac.
I was convinced that we wouldn't have a single guest all day, but again I was wrong. We had 7 visitors after the skies had partially cleared and we were so glad we were there to greet them. One was a man from Grove, OK on business.
Looks like we'll be open tomorrow as well as the entire weekend, so come on over and visit!
