We got 2 1/2" of rain last night and with all the snow and ice, there's no place for the water to go. Was going out to the garage this morning before work when it was till dark, and didn't turn the lights on so I didn't see that the water was almost ankle deep. Oh crap. The storm door on the garage made a wake when I opened it and I got a really bad feeling. Once inside, well, what are you going to do? What's done is done. Came home early from work today and chiseled, chopped and dug a channel for the water to go through in the only place it was possible, right next to the garage door. Used a squeegee and pushed water out for seemingly forever until it was low enough. When i opened the garage door, big rush of water going out. Squeegeed as much as possible with everything in there and have a big fan running full out right now. Just glad it was clear, clean water and I guess the only good thing is, the floor is cleaner now. I still need to move all the stuff along the walls as best I can (again, with the cars in there) and dry those areas yet. Most stuff is fine with a little water but cardboard boxes sitting in water is called a sponge. Being a garage, the floor is sloped toward the door (door end is 4" lower than the front wall) so the water only made it a certain distance. Good thing about that is, all the expensive stuff is at the back of the garage (not counting the cars that is). Phew! Planning on going to Menard's once the evening rush eases a bit and see about getting a pump to put in the driveway. Next question is, do they have any left in stock now. There is a drain for the driveway but it's under who knows how much ice and the pipe is probably ice one end to the other, not to mention where it exits is most likely 6" of ice also. In other words, it's not going to be any help for a while yet. I tried to keep it open this winter but lost the battle a back in February. P.S. Those moving blankets laying on the floor weigh about 500 pounds when saturated with water.
