I came home from school today to find that our window-well had about 4 inches of water in it. Not only was it full of water (and still accumulating) but there was a waterfall coming into our bedroom through our window (which was closed). I'm so grateful I went downstairs to start some laundry when I did. I can't imagine how bad it would have been had I not gone down for another couple of hours. :(
Needless to say, as soon as I saw the lake overtaking our bedroom, I threw on my rain boots, RAN outside, moved the sprinkler, jumped in our window well, and emptied the window well as fast as I could (I used a bucket from the garage). It was about 20 minutes of "shoveling" before the water was below our window again.
What a mess. But I have soaked up most of the water from our floor with towels and now have fans blowing on it. I just have to figure out how to get our SOAKING mattress dried before tonight. Neither of us are going to want to sleep on a wet mattress.
Good thing we just bought an enormous sectional. Lol...............
