I had such a rough night with the Hurricane. I did not sleep a wink since our basement is prone to flooding when we get constant rainfalls. Without fail, after hours of constant rain, water started coming into the basement through the floors, windows and bulkhead door. Water was even starting to come in through the drain of the slopsink in the basement. It's because the slopsink is connected to the sewer line and with the rainwater overloading the sewer system in the neighborhood, the water was coming back into the house. I spend about 4 hours scooping out the water out of the slopsink with buckets. The more I scooped, the more the water filled the sink. I kept at it even though I was exhausted because if I didn't remove the water, my basement would have flooded. What an ordeal! The next project on my list is to install a shut off valve to prevent water from coming back to the house. When the Hurricane finally passed us, I went outside to check out the garden. I couldn't wait to see what was in store for me. I was really surprised, the garden didn't look as bad as I thought it would. I thought the wind was going to tear down the bean pole trellises, but they were still standing. Yeah!
