last night... and the night prior

this is a good time for me to put things in perspective...

the last few nights we have had volumes of rain
yes, definitely volumes

the volumes are so great that the drains behind my house could not take away the water fast enough
well... the clogging added to the volume
perhaps the clogging created the collection of the volume
I bailed out the basement the last two nights
naked in the rain
trying to unclog my drains
trying to mop away my basement
soaking wet
lots of clean up
a little damage

it sucks to have your house flood
yet... there are those that do not even have a house to flood
I think I can deal with my flooded basement
