I was flooded and my business has been closed since Sept 12th. The police let my last patient through the roadblock as the dog was bleeding so bad ( I am an emergency vet) that they wanted to let us help him. Appropriately the dog was named "Bliss." We were in surgery instead of packing up. So, we sustained even worse losses. Bliss is fine, though, so it was worth it!
Thankfully I had tickets to all Red Rocks shows and managed to put in 12 hour days at the "flood site" and make it to the shows at night. And, excellent shows they were
I had Marymoor tickets and debated attending, and my staff overwhelmingly said "GO" and I loved that show!
I now have a dilemma with Vegas tickets. For the first time ever, I had taken an entire week off for my birthday and had planned to see shows in a leisurely manner. Obviously, that hasn't happened and it has been "a long strange trip."
We have had terrible mold problems and each day has brought more issues to light. I am now torn between trying to reopen and going to Vegas. I am still paying my employees in full, but I have had no income for over 2 weeks. The 2014 hiatus adds to the equation, as I have been a fan for so long that a year off is too hard to contemplate.
Do I go or do I stay ??
This may be more venting than anything but man this is tough I know Bobby has a lab and I have 2 labs and lots of folks counting on me, including the clinic kitties who we did save, despite trying to bite me while boxing them up Dr. Liz
