Awesome vs. NOT Awesome

Awesome= Summer thunderstorms. Setting up a" cozy place" in the living room where we can read books and listen to the rain, thunder and hail outside.

NOT Awesome= Flooded basement due to huge summer thunderstorm.

We ended up being very lucky, nothing of consequence was damaged. But poor Jason didn't need one more stressful thing this week (work has been awful). He will still get some time to relax tonight, though.


  1. I am sorry to hear about that. But I am glad that nothing was damaged. We were away from home when it hit, but saw the aftermath and debris all over the roads. It was a little surreal.

  2. So sorry, our basement has flooded numerous times in the past year and it is NOT AWESOME for sure.

  3. That is too bad. I am sorry. I do agree. I love being cozy in the house listening to the storms.

  4. Ugh, so sorry! I wonder if I need to inspect our basement a little closer...

  5. I'm sensing a trend. Up here, anyone who has a west facing window well seemed to get flooded or at least the window well did. If they were quick enough to pump it out before it got in the house than they were good. We spent the afternoon checking to see if anyone need help. We should have gone down to your area. Sorry about that.
