Storm update

Well, despite having a few puddles of water in the basement last night, plus more heavy rain after J and I went to bed, things were fairly dry in the morning. As for the gutter spouts going into the ground by the foundations, I've been told that unless the builder was insane, these are connected to another pipe to divert the rainwater away from the house and into the soil. The leaks we had were simply due to the soil taking on more water than it could handle and getting saturated. All in all, I'm feeling a bit better about the situation.

I'm glad that you guys are okay. I've had a fear of flooding since my viewing of Deep Star Six where that big lobster thing is attacking the underwater research station and bulkheads are breaking releasing thousands of gallons of water.

But yeah, flooding sucks. :(
