My day so far...

Post by beefsupreme42 on Thu Apr 18, 2013 9:55 am

I don't know if you guys know, but almost the entire chicagoland area got flooded after about 2 days straight of nonstop rain... I woke up this morning and found out that our basement was flooded overnight so I went to the store to get some supplies while my dad started pumping it out. The drive that would normally take me 10 minutes took me a full 45 minutes and I could barely see out of the windshield. By the time I got back home, they still didn't cancel school and I was a good 20 minutes away on a clear day with only about 30 minutes to get there. Outside of my house, all the streets are at least partially flooded and there are some that have a strip of water 3 to 4 feet deep that I had no chance of getting across, so I decide to not go to school. Then, 10 minutes before school was scheduled to start, they finally cancel school, but they only e-mail the parents, so all the students that were out driving had absolutely no clue that school was cancelled... the people who run that place are ridiculous...

We just finished most of the basement - we drained the water and have the de-humidifier running now. Right now its just a matter of getting everything that was soaked into the garbage...

Sorry to hear that Beef... Back in May 2010, a MAJOR flood hit Nashville... I had to gut and redo my entire basement... not fun...

Score one for Austin!

We don't have basements here. Sad

Good luck, Beef!
