In 21 years of living here we’ve never had water in our basement. Can you hear the words “Until now”? ~sigh I lost hundreds of dollars worth of scrapbooking supplies because I didn’t heed the little voice which reminded me over the past two years that if we ever got water in the basement the paper would get wet. To make matters worse, the problem probably won’t get fixed right away, which means the next time we get rain it’ll happen again (and again and again). That next time starts tomorrow and goes into Saturday. The dehumidifier is running overtime, as is a small heater, but soon it won’t matter again. Nothing more to get ruined, though, just another big mess to clean up.
That sounds an awful lot like complaining, so I think I’ll shut up now :)
