Flash Flood!

Yesterday, between 3pm-3:45pm my street received approximately 4 inches of rain.

Our basement flooded, again.

Except this time, it was much, much worse. At least it was worse in the amount of ground it covered. Previous floodings have confined themselves to the laundry area (where the floor drain is) and the mud room. This time, the water managed to cover almost the entire basement. The crap that was not purged a few months ago had either been raised, or moved to a corner of the basement that water had not reached. Until yesterday anyway. (sigh)

It was better in that Husband has been pretty much the person to deal with the flooding itself and the cleanup. (Well, better for me anyway) And that it miraculously happened during the first 45 minutes of a rather lengthy nap for Miss D, so Husband was free to take care of things immediately.

Ah, the joys of home ownership!

Oh, dear. So sorry to hear it. Is this the gods' way of telling you to purge even more?

I feel your pain. Boy, do I feel your pain.

oh no! What a pain in the booty - I hope nothing to valuable stored down there was damaged? I guess that will always be a problem in that house.

Gotta be cruel and say I am feeling better about renting currently...
