Wet, Wet, Wet

My cellar is very, very wet. Stay home from work wet. Throw down newspapers to soak up water, wet. When I called in saying I couldn’t come in, I apparently wasn’t the only one.
Ah, the joys of homeownership.
I have a sump pump. It probably should be replaced, as it ‘hiccuped’ leaving about 2-3 inches of water on the floor. It’s failed me before. I worry that one day I’ll lose power or the darned thing will just die and the ground will be rain soaked and I’ll be totally screwed.
Luckily, most things in the cellar in are plastic bins. But there are other things. Plugged in things. Mechanical things. Wood furniture things that are getting wet.
It will probably get better when the rain stops.
