Are you drying out? I'm glad the power came back while you were still able to bail. Any mildew damage from the damp? Our crawlspace drains well, but when the hurricanes kept hitting us last year, we got a lot of mildew and had to put in a dehumidifier.

Did you have much plant damage after it ended? I'm hearing from a lot of people up the east coast from Virginia north through Delaware and Maryland who have wilted plants from the suffocation by so much rain.

Zem, I think you meant Marge and me (Godi). I don't know about Marge, but my rain gage recorded almost 10 inches from Thursday evening until Tuesday. North of here, where Marge lives, a few more inches were recorded. A lot of people have wet basements and more serious problems. We have no basement, but a sunken living room. The power was out for a few hours, so I was bailing water from the sump pump for a while, when I got really sick of it, the power came on again. A lot of people weren't so lucky.
The reason why it could have been a lot worse, was that we had a minor drought and the soil was bone dry. (0.5 inches in March)
So, no damage here, thanks for asking.
