Stepped out to go to the bank yesterday, and upon my return, realized that my basement had flooded. How lovely. Since I live in an old house, built in the late 1800’s, there is no drainage in the basement. So for a hour or so the missus and I bailed and shop-vac’ed the several inch deep lake of water into the utility (laundry) sink. now that everything should be relatively dry, or at least damp, I have to go down and sort out what has been ruined. I can only guess what didn’t survive. Most likely some books, paperwork and my old portfolio which was sitting in the water. I guess the luck of the Irish wasn’t with me yesterday. Typical. Ah well, cest’ la vie.
