Sunday morning we got a wicked Thunder storm that we were so excited to sit and watch! Until the power went out, and our sump pump stopped pumping and the water level rose and rose…until it covered 2/3s of our basement. Compared to our neighbours we were the lucky ones! The bad side is we JUST finished the basement. The good side is because we just finished it, we didn’t have very much stuff down there. We lost a few boxes of books/ childhood keepsakes but nothing super valuable. I think we might need new carpet/flooring and maybe the bottom of the dry wall will need replacing? But our insurance should cover that no problem.
