Making big piles of progress in the move. Almost everything is out of the old apartment except for some cleaning supplies, unused boxes and beverages. They've already started work on some remodeling (new floors, new oven) so we don't have to clean some of it. It was a little difficult when they left the washer and drier blocking the hallway though.

I'm growing more convinced that the flooding we had last Thursday was a result of a minor sump pump issue that should be fixable. (We got maybe a quarter to a half an inch of water on part of the floor in the finished part of our basement. Very disappointing, especially as we had cardboard boxes along with plastic bins down there. kalmn was very helpful in providing a wet/dry vac for water removal and in providing direction to two freaked out new homeowners. We now own our own wet/dry vac and dehumidifier (purchased at Home Depot about five minutes after they closed).) I think the sump pump just isn't engaging soon enough so water was able to back up in the drain tile and managed to overflow through the walls.

Oh, we also had fuse excitement. We have a fuse box in the house and were left several boxes of fuses. Unfortunately the fuses aren't necessarily in the correct boxes so when we blew a fuse we didn't have the right kind of replacement. Some additional documentation should help to avoid that problem in the future.

In non-house related news we had a great time at nicholay and thetrustmeguy's house warming party.

your insurence might cover it if it's a sump pump issue. (if theres damage) one failed right after my parents got there house and it was completely covered including the time they spent cleaning it.

There wasn't any real damage. It's finished space but it's just a tile floor. We got most of the cardboard boxes to safety before water reached them.

Yay! glad you had a good time. I decided to share the creme brulee with trustmeguy and we enjoyed it very much with some pinot evil.
