Looking for a silver lining
A lot of “us” got an unwanted jumpstart on spring cleaning last week when the heavy rains just wouldn’t quit and our sump pumps couldn’t keep up, resulting in flooded basements. My family was one of the “us.”
My husband and I have a nice routine in the mornings. On most days, we start our morning with a cup of coffee and some separate reading time in either our office area or our family room, both of which are in the basement. Then my husband and I get together for breakfast as we watch the news and weather on our only television, located in the family room.
But last Thursday, that quiet routine was interrupted as we went downstairs and stepped onto the water-saturated carpet in our basement. Forget the coffee; we had work to do. My husband began vacuuming up the water, which was a losing battle since the water was still coming into one corner of the basement. We lifted stuff off the carpet. We unplugged everything that could be unplugged.
