2 inches of rain outside....flooding the streets and the Creek right by us....but the sump pump ran and is still running in the basement...
I count.... 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
I count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
MUSIC TO MY FREAKING EARS!!!
The confidence that NO MORE water will invade my basement, my childrens' toys, creep up my drywall and create a terrible growth called MOLD!
I will not have this.....EVER....as long as my handy dandy Sump Pump keeps running....
Thank you Sump Pump gods....I thank you......
We will never have this again:
Do you see that?? The toys floating?? The beautiful carpet under water?? The water creeping up the walls?? INVADING US!!!????? See the reflection of the lights in the water?? AHH!!!
Notice the drywall, do you see where the water was...how high??? Well, in August of 2006 we got more than that!!! Up another 3 or so inches from there!
No more frog swimming in our basement, no more of Noah saying, "Mommy, can we go swimming in the basement??" NEVER EVER EVER AGAIN!!
I cherish you, I love you, I want to marry you Sump Pump for always being loyal and trustworthy....
