5 inches of rain in a little over an hour and no electricity = flooded basement mancave!!!! It's going to be a long couple of days. Good thing for good insurance. Will be hauling items up all night.
Insurance adjuster was already out and they have a cleaning service and contractor coming tomorrow to get the cleanup started. New carpet and tile and a repaint is coming.You have exceptional insurance if they cover damage from ground water. Only way I get that is if I have a sump pump that they know was there and it failed unless there was loss of power by the utility. Be thankful!
I know, the cars in the shop are just fine!! Carpet can be replaced a lot easier.Well it could have been worse...one of the guys in my chevy club had a tornado 2 yrs ago run right through his free standing garage that was 75 ft from his house...destroyed his 57 and 64 vette....yeah could have walloped his house but he said he is more depressed that it took his cars away. His house could have been replaced and they needed new furniture anyway...gotta know - people love their cars!!
