After spending way too much time in the basement mopping and vacuuming up water, I enjoyed the view on a walk this morning.
We had water in the basement after Friday's torrential rains. We got off easy with some water in the basement that required mopping and carpet disposal, and only a few branches down in the back yard. One of our neighbors lost two large trees. One hit her house with a major tree limb piercing her roof and into her kitchen ceiling. Oh - and she had 6 inches of water in the basement. We got off easy.
While I looked skyward and snapped that picture this thought came to me - it's about basements: Humans were not meant to live in holes in ground. Holes are for hiding or storing food. [Sigh] OK, back to the basement.
