Water, water, everywhere...

... and we're busy mopping it up. That was quite the storm last night. Family members and friends in various surrounding cities are busy sloshing through their basements and filling up their tree lawns with stuff that has lost its value.

I'm taking a lovely break from the mess in our basement. Chief is at work trying to keep his eyelids propped open after helping friends move soggy furniture in the wee morning hours. Several men folk in the neighborhood are taking time off work to get the wet out of their houses. I'm grateful, so grateful, for air conditioning.

We didn't lose much since our experience as homeowners has taught us not to store anything but plastic bins on a basement floor. But we lost a little. And I say... Good riddance! Honestly, most of the stuff I tend to store on basements floors is just junk. I didn't see it yesterday but I see it today. Dirty water sometimes brings clarity. And mildew. *sigh* Back to work...
