This rain is absolutely sickening! I have been watching the stupid weather since 4 this afternoon, first tornado warnings (and a confirmed tornado not too far away:eek: ), then I finally get up the courage to work out, thinking the severe weather is over. While working out I eventually hear a slow trickling noise…sure enough...our basement is flooding! We put some towels down, moved some stuff, thought this were ok, since the leak stopped. I go upstairs, watch tv for awhile, my husband I checked the basement again each time it poured, but all seemed ok. We both fell asleep watching tv, and so when I woke up I went downstairs to check on things, and lo and behold, not only did the flood come back that we cleaned up, the basement also started leaking in several other places! Ugh, this is so annoying! We got things cleaned up, but now I get to get up every couple hrs tonight to check things over, and there is a nice line of rain extending from eastern WI (where I am) all the way down to Missouri, all headed my way...yippee :mad:
Now I am watching the news and saw the stupidest warning on the bottom...they said "Flash Flood warning...if you encounter high water turn around, don't drown"...what kind of dumb wording is that..."don't drown" lol.
And earlier tonight they were stupid too...they had on the newscast how if your power is out, you should call so and so number to report it...hello! If your power is out, how on earth are you watching the newscast!?!
Oh well, I should just be thankful I am not in other areas of WI or Iowa, where people have been forced to leave their homes, roads are closed, and worse. I definitely feel for them!
Thanks for listening to my venting. I am just crabby, overtired, and bored, so thought I'd share my frustrations with the world!
I think I will go, take a deep breath, throw the soaked towels in the wash, try to get some sleep, and hope tomorrow is a better day!
