Okay, so now I'm stirred...
Since my relocation (Feb), most of my stuff has been in climate-controlled
storage. Well, I found out just a couple of days ago that what I thought
was a solid wall above my unit was glass painted with opaque paint. Glass
that Katrina sucked right off the building. So my stuff experienced the
hurricane, an additional week of weather, and has been sitting there soggy
and exposed throughout.
I'm back in town now, scrambling to unpack boxes and try to dry out and
rescue the contents (books in particular). Another casualty was my H-47.
My main H-8 was luckily one of the few things I had in my room.
If anyone knows effective methods for removing mold and mildew, particularly
from books, mail them to me directly (since its off-topic). Likewise if you
know how to release pages that are glued together (I'm guessing from
cardboard adhesives that wicked up into them) without harming the print.
P.S. No insurance. I thought the entire building was brick; and if it had
been, everthing would have survived intact.
