In January?

A thunderstorm/tornado warning in January? Who would have thought? Here in the Midwest we should be dealing with winter storm warnings and/or freezing temps. Our area hit a record high of 65!

You can imagine my shock when I entered our basement this morning and found a LARGE puddle of water around our sump tank. Steve came straight home from work. We moved everything out and cleaned up. Seems our sump pump either had an obstruction around the floater or it's electrical problem. All it took was a jiggle of the cord to get it working again.

So a fan is helping to dry the area up and now I have a good reason to reorganize everything we moved out. Look at it this way, at least we don't live here where tornadoes hit -- may I repeat, in January!
