Covered Treasures in Colo. Damaged by Flooding

Covered Treasures Bookstore, Monument, Colo., "will be closed for the foreseeable future due to a flooding issue," the bookshop announced on Facebook Friday, then updated the situation in a later post: "A toilet intake valve upstairs from the bookstore broke sometime between 7 p.m. on Thursday night and 7:45 a.m. this morning. When I arrived at the store, the lobby, stucco walls in the hallways and stairwells were wet. When I opened the side-door to the store, the ceiling panels were on the ground and water was pouring down like I had walked into a thunderstorm! I have some pictures to share with you. We will re-assess things on Monday as the fans will be blowing all weekend to dry out the area. As of right now, the damage was mostly contained to the front room with some floor water seepage into the used book room and the 'new' used book room. We were able to save many books but most of the cards were completely ruined."
