It doesnt happen very often, but right now I just need to blow off some steam.
We've had about 9 inches of rain in the past several days, and on top of that, it melted so much of the snow. One of the TV stations indicated that it was the same as having about 6inches of water coming every hour.
Well, most of that is in my basement. Since Sunday night, I've been non-stop with my Wet-Vac pumping up water. I do have a sump pump in the basement, but where its located, no water gets to it. So, I empty the 6 gallon wet/dry vac container, lug it over to the sump pump to dump it.
So far I have had over 300 trips to the sump pump and water is still coming in. I can not get any relief because there are so many areas that need emergency help. We have roads washed out, train tracks wash out, mud slides and a few people stranded on a cul-de-sac.
I am not sure how my body is going to take this. I've been non stop with this and then going to work, coming home and heading to the basement. No time to feel if I hurt.
I will still try to come on line when I can, but please excuse me if I said a bit grumpy and cold. I am not in the best of moods right now.
One saving grace, as I have always said... All things must pass
I just wish this time they would pass a bit faster!
