Rain Rain Go Away!

I used to like the rain. I love thunderstorms, the sound of rain softly hitting the ground. Every part of it was just plain calming. Well not any more. Now the sound of rain bring fear!! The last 2 nights we have gotten rain. On Thursday night we got about 2.5 inches and we handled that, except we ended up with 2 kids in our bed, and one who wouldn't return to bed. So mom got to sleep in the chair...not very comfortable for night time sleeping just so everyone knows!

Well last night came the motherload...we got about 7.5 inches in a matter of a couple hours. Needless to say, we got a flooded basement. We ended up using a couple of shop vacs to suck up the water and didn't have any furniture ruined. We are going to have to remove all the carpet, some paneling, and maybe fix some foundation walls. But all in all we didn't have it the worst. We are thankful that all our things, and us are safe, we can fix the rest of it. Others weren't so lucky. We will be praying for those less fortunate.

Sorry to hear about your wet basement!!! Darn that "rain-dar" that brought all the purple and red rain.
