More Flooding for the Northeast

I heard on the news today 3 floods in 18 months. That's not something you want to hear. What is that telling us?
Yesterday I got to work at 7:30 only to be called back home at 9 to pick up Jake who wasn't feeling well. Now there were several reasons I didn't want to go home, one being that I was out sick most of last week myself, two, it was flipping windy and I didn't want to be home if a tree came down, and three I knew I'd find water in my basement when I got there!
Third one was not fun, I had to bail the water out by carrying 5 gallon buckets as full as I could handle (water is not light) up the basement stairs to the kitchen sink to dump it. So not fun! But I only had to do it for a little while as my DH came home with a new pump and took over! Now the basement is dry and I'm feeling bad for all those people who have been evacuated from their homes and have lost much more. I don't know why I complained! It's a mess out there!
I'm hoping I can get thru the whole day at work today! Fingers crossed! Have a great Tuesday!

Wow! You must have super human woman strength to carry 5 gallon buckets of water up stairs. That's too much water for me. You can come visit me in AZ. It's dry here....real dry! :o)

Sorry, I missed this one. You aren't still carrying buckets are you? What a mess!
