That's very generous of you, thanks! I think I've got it under control at this point, I put some mileage on the craftsman 16 gallon wet vac and the water down there has receded to one side of the basement which lets the 'stuff' have dry berth for a while. Finally have an excuse to throw a lot of junk away! Mattresses that the kids outgrew, old veneer doors, national geographic magazines that the kids have been clipping pictures from for homework, etc.
With this saturation in the ground I hope we don't get any more rain for a while... boy we've really earned a good fishing season this year!
