Man o man, that sucks, my problems don't seem so big all of a sudden. I had forgotten all about the pole falling on your shop, you are still fighting with that stuff, that sucks!
When I had my shop a fire inspector came in and told me I needed an explosion proof cabinet for my paint. I went out and bought one to the tune of about $500 which was VERY hard to come by for me at that time. I bolted it up on the wall and months later another inspector came by and said I didn't need it! He showed me how he was right after I told him what the other guy said. Sure enough, I didn't need it!
Side note: When I closed up my shop I sold it to a shop near by (there are probably 50-75 shops in the surrounding areas) that I now work at. The other day my boss gave me that box. I now have it at home and plan on painting it like my old shop sign.
