So not fun--a good reason not to have a basement!

Well, pretty much cleaned up, got the water heater working and the furnace is ok. Gas fridge needs to dry out but nothing important was in it so no biggie there.

Back to work tomorrow!

Glad you've got the clean up done and everything is pretty much working. Guess you can be glad it didn't happen when you were away!

Happy packing! I'm sure it's hard to think about spring clothes when the weather is rotten. It's beautiful here and the forecast is for 90's early next week!

I was looking at the 10 day forcast....rain the rest of this week, Sat and Sun we will get some sun and then Mon - Wednesday rain everyday.....really!! As long as we can take off on Wednesday, even if we are a little delayed, I will be ok.....
Heading to Seattle for my grandbabies 4th birthday.....looking forward to seeing her....
I'd love some rain so you are welcome to wish us some our way

Enjoy Seattle. We fly there toward the end of our holiday and will probably drive up to Vancouver for a couple of days and make our way back to Anaheim.

I'm sorry to hear that. I could imagine it would be expensive as there'd be nowhere for it to drain out of naturally. Homes in Australia rarely have basements or attics I believe.

we were lucky no water in our basement, but on a good day it takes me 25 minutes to get to work, today 1.5 hours. The majority of the roads were closed do to flooding, had to re-route then had to go thru at different points flooded roads....then to find out 2 of the doctors were not able to make it in, stuck in their sub-divisions so we called and cancelled the patients on the schedules and were out of the office by 10:45. Coming home was much easier, alto I did take the longer route and retrace my steps from this morning....it is really bad out here.

But at least it has not rained for almost an hour now, but still gray outside....hopefully this will end soon....but they are still calling for rain tomorrow..

later
Wow, that must have been a lot of rain. We get over a metre easily in our good wet season over a period of time. We've had days where we can get over 100mm of rain in a day. This year has been a very dry, dismal wet season for us in the tropics but the south east and central parts of Queensland has had an unusually high amount of rain.

When it rains here everyone seems to forget how to drive! If they're not driving at snail's pace they've morphed into rally car drivers

I've already had a practice run in packing my suitcase for the trip My excuse is that I bought some packing cubes and wanted to see how much stuff I can pack and still have heaps of space left for extras

Usually I use any excuse to start packing "early" however, as much as I am looking forward to going to seattle, I'm not much in a mood to start the packing process......
alto I did pull luggage today and am "putting stuff" in there...major packing will be tuesday.

Have a good one
