Flooding update

Well, good thing I cleaned up and "water proofed" the things stored in the basement because, after our house-wide naps this afternoon, it's official. We're flooding. So, for the first time, we had to use our emergency fund. DaHubby's en route home from Lowe's with a new utility pump to use for draining the low spot in the backyard which is over-saturated and on an incline right towards the house.

We're damp, inconveninced but nothing major yet...but we're expecting three more days of rain.

We're having flooding, too. Our crawl space (thankfully it's not a full basement!) is filling with water so we have a pump running out to the ditch as well as a dehumidifier going. And since I'm so lucky I'm also dealing with shoulder pain (too much Wii), a sick child, and a hubby who's supposed to be going on a business trip this evening until late Wed. pm. Fun times at our house let me tell you! *rolling eyes* ~ Mel
