MORE AND MORE RAIN...

Our winter has been filled with lots of rain and has made things here really wet. We woke up to a snowstorm yesterday morning and by afternoon we were getting rain which quickly turned to heavy rain. This continued into the night and I lay in bed hearing the winds pick up I knew we were in for a good storm. The power flickered on and off throughout the night until 6:00am it went out and didn't come back on...a few minutes later all I hear from down the hallway was a little voice saying" hey, hey, turn on the hall light." That was Blake our 3 year old, he hates having the light off. Once Blake was tucked into our bed I then realized that without power the pump in the basement to drain anywater wasn't working and ran downstairs. OMG water and lots of it. Our basement was flooded with at least an inch or two of water. thankfully it's unfinished and only used for storage of things not to important. I got the kids off to school and when I returned home the power was back on and the water in the basement quickly drained and is now drying out. What a day! Thankfully it happened today and not tomorrow when hubby is off. It would have messed up my day to go shopping and have lunch out :0)
