The Wicked Witch

Thursday, May 25, 2017

We had a heavy amount of rain last night from a tornado that fortunately died out before it reached us. Unfortunately we had a flash flood which measured 8 inches on the outside of the house and as it seeped inside we had to spring into action. Our sump pump couldn't keep up so we got about 3 to 4 inches of water in the basement which took overnight to recede with our extra pump. We called the county engineer this morning because we have new house across our road and the ditch which used to be there isn't there since they put in new smooth lawns. I don't know if that would have made a difference but we thought it was worth exploring. Whew, what a night. 6 hours of watching TV tornado warnings as it made its way ever closer to us. We're grateful that we didn't have damage to deal with this morning. The wicked witch moved on...
