Here was the view once I got inside the car-- cool, huh? Defroster did a fat lot o' nothin.
Thankfully, these guys happened along after only 20 minutes or so. They were coming to fix the building opposite my car in the historical alley-- unfortunately, it had not survived the storm structurally sound, so the city hired a crew to knock down the parts that were hazardous. It still looks like that today.
Oh, and I tried Ting's Szechuan Hot Pot. Bad idea.
