I sure wish that someone would have warned me yesterday that I should BUILD AN ARK!!!
We have three inches of water in our basement. Everything touching the floor is ruined, which is a lot of stuff. I'm trying hard to not get depressed - and trying not to feel sorry for myself - by telling myself it could be a lot worse.
The water removal guys have been here all day. So far, they haven't determined the exact reason for the flooding . . . but our sump pump is not broken (as we originally thought.) They said that one of our neighbors across Thompson Road had eight feet of water in their basement. Therefore, it's hard for me to complain much about three inches.
More on this later, when I have time to write about it!
