Spent the day pumping out water from the rain. The sump pump broke, the water took hold, a new one isn't handling the am't of water still wanting to come in.
We hadn't had water in the basement like this since Hurricane Floyd.
The one thing that is ruined so far until the musty smell sets in and hopefully can be saved is my wedding gown .. somehow water got into the bag and it's all moldy --- I don't care how much it's going to cost -- I'm having it dry cleaned. It's 27yrs old and survived until this water water everywhere.
Not having a Good Day and I hurt all over already. Luckily we got the last sump pump at Sears and my husband installed it.
Did I say I'm not having a good day?
Who's going to sleep near this sump pump when the resevoir overflows?
Oh -- and the electric is out .. thankfully the GFIC tripped and nobody got hurt.
