Put on a clean pair of socks, walk into the kitchen & step in something sticky.

So much rain my back yard is like a swamp. It's wetter than a nun doing squats in a cucumber patch.

The drainage tile connection from my house's perimeter drains and the city storm sewer is overwhelmed/blocked.

I've got every garden hose I own siphoning water from the perimeter drain stub ups out to my lawn, but they're still overflowing and gushing water into my crawl space, which has a small lake forming under the house now. 

Lovely. Getting that dried out is going to be fun. 

Hopefully get the connection unblocked tomorrow  and I can then start pumping out the crawlspace and install a dehumidifier before all of my floorboards start to curl up and a mold festival starts. Fuck.

That really seems more like a problem that you'd experience in a third world country like Greece.
