We got rain today!

Friday, September 26, 2014

Finally! It rained quite a bit last night and this morning! It was pouring on my way to work.

My oldest son came over last night and we had a nice dinner then watched the season premier of Survivor and then the Big Brother finale. It was a perfect night until......we thought we heard the rain coming down, but instead it was my kitchen sink! It filled up both sides with dirty water, then overflowed and overflowed, and overflowed, off and on for about an hour. It soaked the carpet on the livingroom side of the counter and the kitchen floor on the other.

My son said goodnight and went to go home, then came right back in and said his battery was dead on his Jeep. It was late so I just gave him a ride home. I went and picked him up this morning, and we jumped his Jeep and drove it the one mile to his home, and it died before he could pull all the way into his parking space. We had to jump it again just to get it in his spot then I gave him a ride to work.

On the way to his work, it started raining! It was a good downpour too, and the traffic was so backed up, it took me an hour to go from his job to mine. Then around 2 pm there was a outage in the area and we had no phones or internet, so I left about 3 pm.

When I got home I talked to the landlady about my carpet and she said they will not replace the carpet as long as someone is living in it. They will come in tomorrow and such out the moisture and clean the one area of the carpet. They did not replace the carpet before I moved in, and it was pretty stained then. Now it is really bad! I want to find another apartment nearby. This happens all the time with the sink, the toilet, or the tub. too darn many times!

So when I got home early, I went to sleep and slept until 9 pm. Now I will probably be up all night!
Hope things are better tomorrrow!

    Finding a new apartment sounds like an excellent idea. If the plumbing is that bad, it will keep on happening.

    I agree about looking for another apt. close by. Carpet and floors will not dry that well and eill cause mold. Take care of yourself! emoticon

    I think that is a good idea to look for another apartment if they refuse to replace the carpet after all that; I would be worried about mold.

    Glad you got the rain, but sorry about the "flood" in your kitchen!

    That was so nice that you got to spend so much time with your son.

    I hope you are able to get your carpet situation resolved.
