Re: your BOL is blown

I would, (as quietly as possible)and through the closed door, instruct them to act as if they have the wrong house and no one is home, instruct them to announce to all around "wrong house" , come back 3AM and enter from the back of house, invite them in and offer them a large can of wup-ass!

Re: Flood Preps?

Even if there is some mixing of fresh/contaminated water, if you maintain constant outward fresh water pressure, the contamination may be greatly reduced if the structure and contents ( wood, carpet, fabric, etc) have been pre-saturated with fresh water prior to introduction of contaminates.

It's mostly the older Doc's who have " seen it all " that have these beliefs another "no-no" is saying something like " This is going to be easy" aloud, at the start or during a case ( surgical procedure), almost always some complication drags us down just after a FNK blurts it out.
