  •  Mine floods ever since they widened the street (9+ / 0-)

    uphill from me, and didn't put in additional drains.  The whole street drains into an inadequate storm sewer just behind my property.  I put in an extra-strong sump pump two years ago and last year it was really dry.  I guess I will see how it works this year!  I have my fingers crossed.

    Nothing is on the ground in my basement, and I have replaced the dryer once and the motor of the new one as well (it and the washing machine are up on 12 inch blocks).  The bad floods are 26-30 inches deep in the basement.  Many people have floods in this town -- the ground is clay and there are inadequate drains all over town.  

    I dread big rainstorms, needless to say.

    That being said, the thunder last night was might nice.
