Christmas Flooding

Rain, Rain, Go Away!

After a 5 day storm, that produced more moisture than our state receives annually, Audrey noticed water pooling near the drain in the laundry room one morning. Sarah called a guy in our Ward who does plumbing and we decided we'd have them fix the drain after Christmas. Unfortunately, I had to pull an "all-nighter" because the water level kept rising and it needed to be drained on an hourly basis (thank goodness for shop vacs!). So, we called and had our friend come fix it the very next day. Turns out the pipe was broken in several places. Disaster averted. We have to wait a week before they come patch the floor with cement. So until then, we have what the kids are calling our "indoor pool".
