Eek! Good thing you have a basement to take all the water but I'm sure you use it for storage. The best of luck to you!

Iva said...

oh Lenore I am so sorry! The rain is just overwhelming, its ridiculous! Everything will be ok. An inflatable boat could be fun though either way ;) I hope your 5 puggies are ok through all of this!!

Jo said...

The rain is crazy! I'm in L.A., and this city is not equipped to handle it! I wish you all the best!!

Leah said...

We are so used to floods in Manila but I didn't think that I will experience this kind of rain in LA.

Just don't plug the sockets of all soaked electrical appliances. Let them dry first. The fridge can still be saved if it was soaked too. Just let it dry out. xoxo

Frau said...

Sucks I hope you dry out soon!

Treacle said...

Oh no...you'll be in my thoughts. I lived through a flood once when I was 10 and I don't wish the experience on anyone!

Anthony said...

Yikes!
Sorry to hear it, Lenore... We're also experiencing BIG rain storms here in California, right now. But, thankfully, Tommy and I live in an area that is safe from major flooding.

I sure hope you didn't have any valuable stuff stored away in either your basement or garage. But if you did, and they got damaged, just try to remember that they were only material things and you're lucky the flood didn't take your whole house... I know, easy for me to say! ;)

Good luck with all of the "fun" clean-up. If I lived near you, I would lend a helping hand. Honestly.

Whatever you do, don't float away!

photojoy said...

What a news. Are you OK? I hope you're not worn out after all these storms. I really hope you can have a rest and eat well until you come back here. My thoughts are with you.

Grant said...

Darling I'm so sorry to hear that! Here I am, wishing it would rain or hail or snow to cool me down, and you've got some sort of hurricane going on :"(

Hope that there isn't too much damage for you to deal with darling.

Xx

cindy said...

i'm sorry you have a soggy basement and hope it stops there. lenorenevermore unwanted water.

Bunny, THE PARIS HOUSE said...

Oh no Lenore this is terrible and such a pain to deal with. We had this happen over the summer, the fire department had to come and pump out our basement. We lost a lot of workout machines/washing machine..books etc....I hope you are OK and can salvage your things. Thank God You and your babies are safe and that is most important!! {This Too Shall Pass}

Nora Johnson said...

Here in Andalucia, we've just had in the course of one month the average equivalent amount of rain for a whole year!!

Flooding doesn't nearly describe all the resulting chaos! Ugh!! Can heartily sympathize with you there. Good vibes are hurtling through the blogosphere to you from me to you right now!

XOXO LOLA:)

Well that sucks! I hope it doesn't get worse. Anything that takes you away from use is intolerable!

The fact that you can find humor during a crisis time like the one you're having convinces me of your awesomeness. Hope the rain lets up and the floods dry out soon. Til then, you're in my thoughts. Hugs.
