Drying Out

      That's what the basement is doing.  I ran the sump pump until right before leaving-for-work time, coiled up the hose and power cords, and by the time Tam was back from the doctor,* the floor drain was draining.  I left the dehumidifier on "always on."

     The basement was still pretty damp when I got home from work, but aside from a laundry basket that had ended up in a low spot, things were drying out.

     There's one rainstorm, and it was a doozy, with record flooding to the North of Indy -- Kokomo and Elwood were claiming it was the worst ever.  I don't know about that; photographs of the flooding in 1913 look even worse.  But it's awfully close.

     Here's hoping we don't get rainfall for quite that long and at that rate very often.

The 1913 flooding may have looked more impressive, but with all the building that's gone on everywhere in the past 100 years, this year's flood has probably done more damage.
