I carried my sewing machine and many loads of books up to the library. We moved everything that we could onto shelves and other things had to be taken to other rooms. Rob vacuumed water out of the carpet for days. We finally got it all out of the carpet, but what a smell. We set up fans and now we have the air conditioning running because it's in the high eighties outside, but we have a space heater in the office trying to dry it out.
Today I walked into the room in my bare feet and it feels dry but there are more storms on the way. Our forecast says that next Thursday will be the first dry day. This morning we had a specialist come inspect the basement to see if we have structural damage such as a crack in the wall, but it seems that the ground is just so sodden that water is seeping thru the concrete. For now we'll keep trying to stay dry. When the rain finally stops we'll bring in dirt to build up the low spots in the yard around the foundation.
