At 9:30 this morning, all looked fine in the basement. At noon, we were a little concerned, as the pump was not quite keeping up with the water. You can see the support post and base is not underwater (9:30 am).
There's about a foot of water in the basement, but the pump is going and we are hoping for the best. For now we've left the furnace off, when the water level drops we'll try turning it on and see what happens.
The rain has let up, since noon, when Dan put out the rain gauge, we've only received an additional 1/2 inch. The wind, too, has calmed, I was surprised we lost our power so late in the day after the wind had lessened considerably.
