The Wine is Safe (for now)

We have a flooded basement. In the 30 years since this house was built, there has been no water in the basement. We’ve had days of rain before and never a drop of water in the basement. It’s been raining here since Thursday around 9pm, and it first flooded on Saturday morning. Not too much, but two spots. This morning, there is at least an inch across the whole floor and two inches at the low spots. Trying to sweep it down the drain is like herding cats….impossible. Especially because it’s still raining.

But the wine appears to be on safe ground for the moment. Hopefully it stays that way. Our sump pump is shot, it’s not working at all, so I’m trying to figure out if I should get it replaced, or if that’s even part of the problem.

Sigh, the joy of homeownership. At least the wine’s safe.
