Too much..

I know that Seattle is known for its amount of rainfall. Yesterday was a little overboard. We had just over 2 inches of rain in 24 hours. It was great. My stupid drain outside my lower glass door couldn't keep up, and water began to come into the basement ( which is the older boys bedroom). I've never seen them move so quickly in getting their junk off the floor. Jon and Tom had cups, filling them and tossing the water into the yard. Tom suggested renting a jack hammer to create a new drainage hole. I told him I didn't think that my husband would go for it.
  Later today were are suppose to get a wind storm. It's been several years since we have had a good one, so it will be interesting to see how much damage happens, especially since it was so wet yesterday.
   I had the kids make sure their flashlights are ready, I have kerosene for my lamps. Now just waiting for the fun to begin...


  1. Hahaha! I bet you wished the boys always pick things up off the floor that fast. Reading that made me laugh out loud. :-) Sorry you got flooded though.

    The wind storm may be a good test for your family preparedness plan. Stay safe.

  2. That storm was crazy but I loved it. I hope you didn't end up with any damage in your basement!
