  EZDownstairs Flooding
  4:30am wake-up call
  Earlier this week on Wednesday morning, we all woke up to a wet soppy mess...This is what the downstairs looks like when the toilet overflows and runs throughout the night.
  You can see how wet the carpet is.
   
  Alpine Cleaning & Restoration to the Rescue
  Nationwide insurance sent out Alpine Cleaning & Restoration.  The carpet & pad were immediately removed.
   
  Drying Out
  After removing the hardwood floor on Thursday, they set up dehumidifiers and blowers all throughout the 1st floor.
   
  Drying out the Kitchen
  The equipment will be running all throughout the weekend.
   
  This is a Dehumidifier
  The LGR 2800i is a dehumidifier.
   
  This is a Blower
  Up close with a blower. 
   
  There are 3 dehumidifiers & 13 blowers setup downstairs.
  And boy are they loud...but not as loud as the Seahawks 12th man.
   
  And now you know why Bo has been hiding in the guest room closet with a picture of Kyle & Alexis.

  Ahh...the good ole days, right Bo?

  2013 Boating Log.
  Pre-Entry One: Picked up the boat from Shane & Teresa's house
  May 2, 2013 - Marysville, WA: Gary
  Picked up the boat at Shane & Teresa's.
   
  Entry One: Lake Stevens, WA
  May 4, 2013 - Lake Stevens, WA: Gary & Yvonne on the "official" opening day of boating season.
  Afternoon Sunning & Boating
  Air Temp: 78° / Water Temp: 60°
  Notes: Yvonne worked from home while Gary got the boat ready for it's inaugural launch of the year. We launched around 4pm and docked at Dan & Jenni Kelliher's house for half an hour for a quick "hello".
   
  Entry Two: Lake Stevens, WA
  June 6, 2013 - Lake Stevens, WA: Gary & Bryce on the "official" opening day of boating season.
  Late Afternoon/Early Evening Wake Surfing
  Air Temp: 78° / Water Temp: Did Not Record
  Notes: Gary had 3 wake surf sessions and Bryce had 2 wakesurf sessions.  We picked up Dan Kelliher for Gary's last surf run and gave him a 15 minute break from his landscaping chores. Yvonne & Alexis did not go as they had hair appointments followed by volleyball practice in preparation for the Florida tournament in 2 weeks.
   
  Entry Three: Lake Goodwin, WA
  July 14, 2013 - Lake Goodwin, WA: Gary, Yvonne & Alexis.
  Late Morning / Afternoon Cruising & Wake Surfing.  I surfed behind Shane & Teresa's boat and ended up getting hit in the head with my surfboard.  "If you're not bleeding...you're not trying."  Trailering the boat took 45 minutes due to the comedy of errors of people launching & trailering ahead of us.
  Air Temp: 84° / Water Temp: 77°
  Notes: We launched in Renton at the Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park.  Boat traffic in and around the boat launch was unusually light for a sunny Saturday afternoon.  The parking lot has really tight spaces with little room for wide turns.  NG!
   
  Entry Four: Lake Washington, WA
  July 20, 2013 - Lake Washington, WA: Gary, Yvonne & Sabina.
  Afternoon/Early Evening Lap around Mercer Island with Wake Surfing sessions with Seahawks training facility & with Mt. Rainier backdrops (pictures coming soon)
  Air Temp: 84° / Water Temp: 77°
  Notes: We launched in Renton at the Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park.  Boat traffic in and around the boat launch was unusually light for a sunny Saturday afternoon.  The parking lot has really tight spaces with little room for wide turns.  NG!
   
  Entry Five: Lake Stevens, WA
  August 17, 2013 - Lake Stevens, WA: Gary, Yvonne, Alexis with Ron, Allie & Paige Payseno.
  Wake Surfing with the Payseno's...Woo!!!
  Air Temp: 76° / Water Temp: 76°
  Notes: Mostly overcast skies with some sun breaks. The least crowded August day on the lake I've ever seen even thought the temperature was perfect.
   
  Entry Six: Lake Stevens, WA
  August 18, 2013 - Lake Stevens, WA: Gary & Yvonne,
  Afternoon lunch & cruising.
  Air Temp: 78° / Water Temp: 76°
  Notes: A little windier than usual this afternoon.
   
  Entry Seven: Lake Stevens, WA
  September 1, 2013 - Lake Stevens, WA: Gary, Yvonne, Alexis, Scott (w/ Jenny & Gabby) & Audrey (picked up at Kahlia's dock).
  Afternoon wakesurfing, wakeboarding, lunch, tanning & cruising.
  Air Temp: 80° / Water Temp: 76°
  Notes: After boating, we went to the outlet mall and unsuccessfully found board shorts for me (inspired by Scott), then we ate dinner at Olive Garden with Audrey.
   
  Post-Entry Seven: Dropped the boat off at Shane & Teresa's house
  September 29, 2013 - Marysville, WA: Gary
  Dropped the boat off at Shane & Teresa's house (until next year's boating season)
