We had a septic flood last night....



and again, I was the one to discover it. The drain is repaired, the pumper is coming today, Service Master was here last night, cleaning and disinfecting everything. Right now, I have huge fans and de humidifiers running 24 7 in the basement. We don't know what failed. It might have been the rain, it might be something clogged or broken.

I lost a sofa, 4 or 5 rugs, boxes and boxes of books, a printer, some luggage, some curtains, bolts of fabric, my sons tent, floor pillows etc.... we haven't even made the list yet- it's all chucked out the basement in the backyard.

It was really gross...... this was after the water was removed- this was all over the basement floor.....imagine this about 20 feet by 40 feet.....

Shudder. All that stuff lost (you know that the "boxes and boxes of books" affected me the most!). And what a mess to have to contend with. *hugs*

That's what got my husband too. A lot of his childhood books are gone. At least one box of my design books.

The sofa, rugs, fabric- that's just stuff and it can all be replaced (or not) but his childhood can't be.

It broke my heart.

That super-sucks -- so sorry you lost so much stuff, especially the stuff that was near and dear to your husband's and your hearts.
