Busy

This is my basement.  The light pink parts of the carpet are floating.  After killing 2 pumps, we're getting the water out with a neighbor's pool pump.  We'll be fighting it for a few days though.  The water table is so high, the water is coming in through cracks in my foundation.  You can see it bubbling up. 
This is the back corner of my yard.  Even the neighbor's trampoline is under water, something that has never happened.  

I'll catch up in a few days.  I'm busy remembering that it could be much worse.

Oh, Heather, that stinks! SAVE THE CANS! How are the chickens doing? And your beautiful garden!

Here I am, complaining about no water and no rain. That's a thousand times better than what you are faced with! My goodness, will it never end?

Oh, what a pain! Looks like you're doing a good job keeping it lower than most of your stuff. I know it's exhausting, though; my friend is dealing with the same thing in Boston.

Sorry Heather! It just plain and simple stinks! My offer for freezer space still stands if you are in need of it. This is just one of those sucky times when bad things happen to good people ...

Oh man! That is a scarey mess. I hope the water recedes soon for you and the pumps keep up until then.

I'm so sorry you got hit so badly. I wish I could have giving you my little backup pump, but with all that water, I doubt it would do much.

We've had a couple of sunny days here in s. Maine. I hope the same has been true for you and that you've been able to dry out a bit ;).
