We went to a community garage sale today. Lots of sales, but I didn't find a single thing to buy. After that, we went to the friends of the library sale--They had about as many books as we do...We wound up with about 10 books, a record low, and an order of magnitude less than usual.
When we came home, I heard water running in the basement. The washer had been filling for 5+ hours...Not only that, but the floor drain was clogged. There was about 3 inches of water in about half the basement.
It could have been a lot worse--Very little is stored on the basement floor itself--there was one box of Xmas lights and ornaments that got wet. I found the problem with the washer--The hose that controls the water level had popped free, so I put it back and added a cable tie to try to hold it a little better.
