What sucks the most is there are other areas of the U.S. that need the rain, like Texas and here we are hoping it stops. The schools called not long ago and they are sending all of the kids home because the parking lots are flooding. Our road that we live on is also closed. Thankfully we are on high ground, it's just that to either side of us are low spots.

I guess the worst is yet to come and everything still has yet to crest. Supposed to rain all week.

Don't you just wish you could send some of that down Brian's way.
Keep an eye on that sump pump and stay dry.

It's been raining here for several days, but nothing compared to what you're getting. Just enough rain to keep everything wet and miserable!

Here in the good old central Susquehanna valley we are getting HAMMERED!!!! 9" in the rain gauge this morning since Sunday. That doesn't take into account all the rain we got today. The flooding thats going to go on here in the next several days hasn't been seen in this measure since hurricane Agnes in 72. National guard is here evacuating people and some major roadways will be no doubt closed tomorrow. River here is expected to crest at Sunbury about 2 ft below the top of our flood wall last I heard. That will mean major flooding of surrounding areas. Sorta put the brakes on going to Penns Cave for the antique show this weekend.

The wet basements do suck. I have been thinking about trying to find a nice sized pto driven water pump to be able to mount and be driven from one of the garden tractors.
