In the photo you can see the waterslide in our backyard. Previously, it was just an ordinary slide.
Water is coming into our basement, but the ejector pump is doing its job just fine.
But... what if it just keeps raining for 40 days?
I suppose the odds are remote,
but maybe I should buy a boat.
UPDATE: The Trib says yesterday was the rainiest day ever measured in Chicago.
And, the Chicago River has crested on the northwest side, and the fire department is rescuing people in rubber boats.
I'm on high ground, so the odds are slim,
but I'm really glad I know how to swim.
