Uncharacteristically heavy rains have been falling here for two straight days and we are flooded!
Our neighbors have a foot of water in their basements,but Mr. JB and I have been sleeping in four hour shifts and bucketing out the water as it pours in through a crack in the foundation of our basement we didn’t know was there! We’ve kept our water level at around half an inch, so we should be okay when it finally stops raining.
Holy hell! I don’t understand how some people just stare at water pouring into their basements and do nothing! WTF?!?
Get a bucket! Get mopping! Yeah, it’s grueling work. It’s YOUR house!
Guess we’re breaking the floor this summer and putting in new concrete. Fun. But for now, we’re bailing like sailors on the Titanic.
Lots of love,
