The amazing two story, frontier-style building next to Bud Rips is gone and it looks likely that the surrounding buildings may be damaged or destroyed as well. For anyone familiar with the block, this was a drycleaner before the storm. Across the street is a furniture studio--part of the complex I live on--and a really great commercial space turned residential property which is always decorated for the holidays.
Brando and I went out to check the damage, but the shower of lit embers was a little more than I could handle. Let's hope our roof doesn't catch fire.
