Very brief recap of my weekend....
Wind - 60 miles per hour
Rain - hours and hours of it which is fine until....
Loss of Electricity which means NO SUMP PUMP
At 3 a.m. hubby and I went downstairs to empty the water filling up our basement because the sump pump was out and we don't own a generator.
Luckily, my basement serves as the laundry room so there is a large sink we used to dump the buckets of water into.
We were not able to get a generator (Home Depot sold out of all 20 in 10 minutes and none were available in the other surrounding stores), but the electricity came on around 8:30 a.m. (16 hours after it went off).
The cable t.v. and Internet back on another 12 hours.
Odd how much we take modern conveniences for granted - no lights, no use of cordless phones, no connection via tv or Internet to outside world and NO DAMN SUMP PUMP. I missed that the most.
I hope everyone had a better weekend. Rain today, but no complaining because I have electricity.
