Is your basement dry?

Mine is not. The heavy rain this evening backed up the sewers and caused seepage from everywhere, and as a result, I have several inches of water in my basement. If you have a basement, how are you doing?

The river is now (10:00pm CST) at 14.5 feet and headed higher. The swale at College and Jackson is running well, and some people were enjoying driving through the several inches of water on College by Iroquois Park.

Is your basement the worst you have had? Mine was, but it was just a clogged drain cover. We were lucky, although walls are old and tired and leak a lot. We are working on them, but folks near the underground river that runs through Rensselaer will continue to have problems with high water.
