If I waited for beautiful weather to sail, I'd never sail.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Well i have been pumping the rain out of my basement since last night at about 7:00PM. I thought we might dodge the bullet, and then the floodgates opened :-(

Others have it worse, I know, but this is going to cost several $1,000 to repair. I wonder if there will be a "bailout" for those of us with swimming pools below our houses?

Depends on whether you get declared a Federal Disaster Area... we have...but I can't take advantage of it, since we have no flooding or water issues...

The entire state of RI (not saying much, I realize, we're small) has been so declared. I'll trade ya my ability to take advantage og it for your dryness!

Starting at about 2;00AM today, the water finally stopped coming in and the pump was ahead of it. Today is a day to shop vac the carpet before mold starts. I can stand loosing the carpet, now I am trying to save the walls :-(

It wasn't that much dismay, we probably all needed a dink and a smoke on that trip!
