I am so annoyed. Without knowing my sump pump went out and we had a HUGE downpour yesterday. So, on my way down to the basement stair landing (this is where I keep the tank of crickets for the lizard) I could smell mildew. I didn’t think much of it but thought that was really odd and told my husband. He did not seem alarmed at all so I shrugged it off. No biggie. Well…. I went to the basement ans took one step on the carpet and enough water squished out of it to cover my toes. THE ENTIRE BASEMENT FLOODED! So my workout area is saturated, we lost about 100 books or more and thank goodness there was a moisture barrier under the new wood floors so those are okay. So this means I lost my workout area for now. We have tons of fans going so we can dry it out and need to get a dehumidifier down there. Of course this happens when I just get back to my workouts, so for now I have lost my workout area and will have to spend quite a bit of time getting the basement cleaned up. It’s all good though. Temporary set back. Just terrible annoying! And with all of those fans going I can smell the mildew creeping up to the first floor. YUCK!
