Well, the hard part of the hurricane is over! Now comes the fun part – the clean-up. The lights only flickered on and off throughout the night. We were lucky not to have lost power, since almost half a million New Jerseyans are experiencing power outages.
So the basement got about a foot of water overnight. Sump pumps got overwhelmed and stopped around 1:30 AM. The water’s at 6 – 8 inches now – need to find a way to get the sump pumps working again. My poor old boots got waterlogged and since the lining is faux fur, they’re too soaked and heavy to use anymore. Also had to turn off the air conditioning since the unit got flooded.
Much work to do – more later.
