    Sending positive energy their way...

    Watching it on the news. What a mess.

    This too shall come to pass.

    Ma Nature can be a cruel entitiy.

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    Just heard from Steve Gronsky

    They came within eight feet of going under water. He sent a video. Scary. 
    Retired and loving it.

    My entire neighborhood

    Riverside, RI a part of East Providence have flooded basements, our problem is not the rivers but water table. I have three sump pumps running year round and it is able to stay with the water table normally. Not with this I have six inches of water in the basement (my office). My neighbors who have no pumps have water up to the top of the cellar stairs. We will not however be eligible for any assistance.

    I have a pump running right now which pumps 75 gallons per hour and it is barely keeping up, that along with three sump pumps and another small pump. It is real bad and is supposed to peak this afternoon at around 3 PM.
