Now, to switch to non-Audrey-related updates, our basement flooded AGAIN. We've been having some interesting weather here in Indiana, and we got several inches of rain since Friday morning. We were at school and then my parents' for Christmas, so it never really occurred to us what was going on weather-wise at home. When the roads started to flood last night before we left Mom and Dad's, I had a sudden sinking feeling...our basement was going to be an ocean of water when we got back! It typically floods only once or twice a year and only if the city drains get backed up (it comes up through our basement drain).
When we got home today after church, we assessed the damage. Worse than we thought! Although the water had already drained away and it was beginning to dry, we could tell the the water reached new levels. We have everything up on pallets at the very least, but even those items got wet. The worst was a box of books. Although there were no valuable ones in the box, Kyle hates to waste a good book. Most of the books were his, but my copies in the box that got wet are duplicates of ones I have at school, so not a big loss, really. We're attempting to dry things out, though! Hopefully nothing will stick together too much!
