UNM Zimmerman Fire...

So for those of you who do not know, there was a massive fire at the UNM Zimmerman Library last Sunday night. Well we have been told that the library is going to be closed for a long time.

When I get back to my own comptuer (I am updating from a term in Dane Smith Hall right now), I will post some links.

So this morning I was on my way to class in the Kiva which I walk by the back side of Zimmerman to get there. So as I was walking past Zimmerman and into the Education building I smelled the o so great smell of burnt crap, much like the burning garage truck from yesterday. Anyway, so I know how big they say this fire was, and have seen pictures of the smoke pooring out of the building. But something really is just not adding up here.

What I mean, is that unless the fire was bigger then they reported, they should have had at least the ground floor and the upper floors reopened by now. The fire was in the basement at the east end, and as such I have heard in differnt e-mails on the list serv that a lot of the damage was limited to that area. Now I do know it takes time to cleanup from fires and stuff, but they still have the crime tape up and have a lot of the over all area blocked off.

Now that makes me wonder even more what is going on around there. Something tells me there is a lot more to this story then they are letting on about.

Well, I need to run to my last class of the semester. HELL YA!
