Water in the basement, as of Sept. 10
Looks like the ancestral home got about four and a half feet of water in the same manner as in 2006 -- the ground was so saturated that the excess was forced out of the drains -- but this time the built-in sump pump never stopped running, as the power to the area was apparently never off [for long]. Um, hooray.
