Probably no sun today. There's water in the basement. Not a lot, but it seeps in through every tiny crack. Much more rain and I may be having to rig up the pump.
Generally, the basement is set up to survive a little water on the floor. We have a dehumidifier, things are largely stored off the floor, and if the rain doesn't go on too long, it works out. Two or three times, the basement has taken on significant amounts of water, including one sewer back-up nine years ago. The floor drain with its anti-backflow valve has been replaced since, and the city redid the sewer and storm drains the following year. But the system is still semi-combined and significant, prolonged rainfall is not without risk.
So here's hoping for the best and for no more rain for awhile.
