Lots of Water
The Old Lake was full to the banks this weekend. Friday we had 4" of rain fall in less than half an hour. It overloaded the drainage system in our little town. We don't have water come up in our basement, but this time we did! It was a mess.
So I spent my weekend pumping out the water, hauling bag after bag of garbage out, mopping, and then bleaching the floor. Yuck. That was just in the front section of the basement. There is still a mess in the back, but it is just a room with junk in it anyway, so it will wait until next weekend.
It's something that needs to be done anyway, but I didn't want to have to do it while everything was waterlogged!
