We have all of the collections out of the house so we can protect them while we get to work cleaning up the mess and fixing the damage. My movers were a great group of friends and volunteers and I am extremely grateful!
The assessments are in full swing and a wide array of recommendations are being made by a slew of noted experts whose opinions are varied and approaches diverse. We are hosting a bunch of meetings tomorrow that include another round of experts followed by the decision makers locked in a room at the end of the day to discuss the various options.

One shining light, the weather has been gorgeous. Today has been high 70s sunny and breezy, perfect weather for drying out a flooded landscape. The path is still absolutely beyond navigation. I went about 15 feet and emerged with 20 pounds of mud caked to the bottom of my shoes.
We have received a wide array of comments and well wishes from fans of the Farnsworth House and I would like to extend a global thank you to all. I try to answer everyone personally, but its not always possible, so please understand that your emails are appreciated.
