Fortunately it's A. a rental and B. something that happens frequently enough that the owners installed a sump pump. It doesn't usually get this bad but it's been a really rainy week and the floating switch thingy on the sump pump got stuck and the basement filled up with a few inches of water while I was out running errands today. Let me tell you, I will be so excited when the time comes to move!
So Alby got to see something that he probably doesn't get to experience in California. He seemed less than thrilled. But I have better ideas for the next few months. It should be fun!
