Blame it on the Rain

Today was cool and rainy. Thunder and lighting rainy. Hail and hydroplane rainy.

Our sump-pump broke.

We had 3-4 inches of water in the basement. I was summoned home with an urgent phone call. We desperately filled buckets and dumped them outside in the pouring rain, POURING rain, for about a half an hour until I said, "Did you call a plumber?"

We called a plumber. We continued to fill buckets. We were soaked to the bone. No, deeper than that. Soaked to the marrow.

1 plumber, 1 fat check, 3 changes of wet clothes, and 2 sore backs later, we are mostly dry and really tired.
