It's Raining Sh--
I've done things today more disgusting than any I've ever done before. I tried to prevent the inevitable: called my insurance guy, called the sewer department, but to no avail. The storms have been so bad and incessant here that the homes in my neighborhood are floating in sewage. Yep, the sewer guy actually had to come to my house and TAKE PICTURES OF THE PILE on my basement floor (everyone together now: EEWWWW!) and, although he admitted any amount of human poop on a floor is gross, he did tell me mine wasn't that bad. There apparently are homes on the north side of Valpo with a FOOT OF FLOATING SEWAGE in their FINISHED BASEMENTS. Uggghhhh. So, I have my dehumidifier plugged in and am trying to dry the, um, liquid portion. In the meantime I rubber gloved and shovelled and dumped the, um, solid part. (I use the word "solid" loosely here). Once it's dry I'll have to bleach everything but until the water in the town's sewer lines goes down, the water around the pipe of my basement will remain. So bleaching at this point doesn't do any good, except the poop smell becomes bleachy poop smell.... again, Ugghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
