Alright! Up again in the wee hours of the morning. This time it wasn’t even our fault! We’d been having a thunderstorm and rain (snow earlier in the day) off and on for hours. Sleeper was a little freaked by the thunder, but it didn’t bother me.
Anyway, suddenly the rain gets really heavy and wakes us all up. The Papa is out of the bed in a flash and going down to the basement with mudboots and flashlight. We didn’t get to go, which I think is monumentally unfair!
Next thing we know, he’s back upstairs and telling us the basement is getting flooded, so he’s setting up the emergency sump pump, and then has to go outside in the rain to see if the water is coming out of the hose. It was.
Meanwhile, Mama is building up the fire in the woodstove, and we’re bouncing off the walls having a great time! We LOVE to get up in the middle of the night and play, especially if the Mama and Papa are up, too.
So now we’ll probably all have some bites (do you hear that, Mama – where’s the bites?), while we wait to make sure the water doesn’t get any higher and take out the hot water heater like it did last year, Mama says. Fine by us! Now, where’s the bites?!
I had an all-night party too since the bathroom was spewing water and momma kept having to change the pans out. Luckily the plumber came today and we all got some sleep in!
