There are floods and flood warnings all over this area after a weekend of heavy rains. Thankfully this isn't the 'house swept away' sort of flooding that some people have suffered, but more of the cars stranded in waist-deep water sort of flooding. Our immediate vicinity is in pretty good shape, as we're close to the Hudson river which receives more than it gives in such circumstances. Our house in particular, however, suffered a little last night, as the basement started flooding, the first time in quite a while we suffered with this. I had to do some serious bailing to get water out of the WTF hole in the basement floor. The odd thing is the water was spouting up through a thumb-sized hole next to the WTF hole like a geyser. In one of those "it can't be that easy" moments, I jammed a cork in the smaller hole, which actually seemed to stem the flooding. Weird.
