We survived the silly mardi gras week and a half long celebration in this town and now my buddy and I are cleaning up the mess everyone made while here. It should be back to normal by tomorrow and then my buddy and I can finally go to the grocery store and buy food again since there should be food on the shelves once more. There were so multiple people in town that the stores were all running out of food, so I just decided to wait until the whole thing was over before venturing into the store again to get some food. The local company near me made a killing with their air conditioned eating establishment that makes crepes. I walked by one day and there was a line of about 90 people outside waiting to buy a crepe. The local contractor next door said they had a line of people all day long like that and that in his local company there was nobody. I guess it goes to show you that people like crepes more than feeling comfy in the home. I appreciate crepes too, but with the Heating, Ventilation and A/C system sales and HEPA filter sales that the new contractor had going on I suppose I might be more inclined to go there and grab some things that I needed. But crepes are pretty tasty, and when you are on vacation for Carnaval, well anything goes. I am going to labor on my media air cleaner today in my flat and clean the filters in it. I have not cleaned this component for almost a year now and it is way overdue.
