Guess what happened to us this weekend!






Our town has had some pretty heavy rain and severe weather this past week and weekend. We were at my brother's graduation over the weekend and didn't get home until late. But when we woke up this morning and made it downstairs, we had a little surprise waiting for us!

Yep. Water. Everyone's favorite basement surprise. :)

Dave spent all morning pulling up the carpet and cutting out the wet pad underneath. Hopefully we can salvage the carpet, as it was new a little over a year ago.

We called our friend Jeremy who is in the disaster restoration business, and he hooked us up with a dehumidifier and a couple of fans. This was after I had been all over town, only to find out that everyone is SOLD OUT of dehumidifiers already. Thank the Lord for Jeremy!

I'm so sorry to hear about the water invasion of your home! :-( I must admit I kept a close eye on my basement due to the continual rain...I thought about riding a canoe to work this morning but wasn't sure how they handle canoe parking downtown! Ha!! Good luck with drying out!!

Oh no! I was just thinking of calling you to make sure you guys didn't have any flooding at your house, because I heard on the news that your town was hit really hard last night! Ugh!

Ohhhh, so sorry! Hopefully it'll dry out and you can keep the carpet.

Our basement flooded 2 weeks ago. But it is only partially finished and is just storage and a playroom. We have cheap pieced carpet, so not much damage done...
