How High’s the Water, Mama?

Well, it was 1-2 inches in our basement one week ago. It’s been a long week of throwing out and drying out, and we’re still not finished. :-(

We were actually very lucky compared to the other 18,000 homes that had flood damage in our metro area. Much of the stuff in our semi-finished basement only got wet up to its ankles and a lot of it was safe in plastic bins or stored up on shelves including (drum roll please) all of my fleece (insert cheering crowds here).

I can’t capture the smell here. You’ll just have to use your imagination…

Here’s what the best-dressed flood clean-up crews are wearing these days…

That’s me, rockin’ the Wellies and bleaching everything in sight. Mostly the area rug was in sight this day.

It pains me to say that our 10-year record of flood-free basement has gone down the drain. (I suspect it pains you also, to read this terrible pun.)
