See the water line?
Remember this post from last summer? Our rainy summer season got started with a bang last Friday with 2+ inches of rain falling in about 60 minutes which lead to 3 inches of standing water in our basement. We were very prepared this time and had minimal damage to our stuff (except for the bottom three inches of our bookshelves and piano- we'll have to see how that one turns out).
Here's the video Jon took during the flood:
We spent all day yesterday cleaning up our basement and it is pretty much back to normal, function-wise. We're hoping that sandbags will minimize the damage next time. Not that anything about this was humorous, but when we looked outside after the flood waters had receded, all of our outside toys were gone (floated away into other people's backyards) including our sandbox turtle! We found it about twenty feet away and the sand inside was still dry as a bone. The real question is, how are we going to get it back into our yard? :)
