The nor'easter has come and gone, and I'm still in one piece. The basement, however, got more water than ever in the past. Apparently there is such a thing as a shop-vac that can be used with a garden hose attached, so that it works like a pump. Sounds good to me. But of course everyone in this part of the world wants one of these right now and they're impossible to come by. I'll let the dehumidifier chug away, doing what it can, and try to pick one up in a day or two or three. Always something.

How's the basement now? I don't know what companies like ServPro charge, but if it got pretty bad, they can help pump it out, clean it up, and dry it out...

It's fine. I actually did finally get one of those pump/vac things at the hardware store on Sunday, just to HAVE. But by then the combination of the dehumidifier and the natural draining effect (porous floor, I guess, since there is no actual drain) had taken care of it. Apparently the fire department does this too; that wouldn't have occurred to me. But we saw them at the house next to H's last week, pumping away. Not sure how deep it would have to be to qualify for this, but I suspect that my situation was minor compared to most.
