I just got back from vacation and was a little worried. Thankfully not a drop.

Was wondering how you guys were doing up there. 3 hours south, my yard could use more than just the little bit we got.

We finally got some rain here today. I can't remeber the last day it rained.

Hope everyone is high and dry. I really hate flooding, I have know too many people that have had their homes flooded.

It looks like my wet basement woes are finally behind me. All the rain we had and my basement is bone dry. *knocks cautiously on wood*

Lots of water North and Southeast of me. I'm in a pretty high spot so the flooding doesn't really ever bother me. I know the reservoir about 6 miles West of me is filling up fast. Heard there are about a dozen counties here that are disaster areas. Sounds like things are gonna dry up over the weekend, so that should help.

Our new house had a little issue. The neighborhood took a lightning strike from the microburst and power was out for 4 hours. The battery-backup for the sump only lasted 2.5 hours so the house took a little water the night before we closed.

I'd been in our house for three years and hadn't seen a drop of water.... until this spring. No (or very little) standing water, just enough to remind me that finishing the basement isn't really viable right now.

I've always lived on hills, so real flooding has never been an issue for me. Hope the new house's basement doesn't get too wet for you!

We live on a hill, too, but we still had seepage into our finished basement. Even drain tile didn't help. The trick was to put a catch system on the INSIDE of the basement wall with a sump pump. The water still seeps in, but is drained and pumped away with no problems.


Oh, and Cheese, if you have frequent power outages, you might think about getting a good generator with a transfer switch.
