Boo, I'm sorry to hear that. It's been wet up here in Milwaukee too, had major flooding a couple years ago with lots of swimming pools in basements where there were none before...
We put a drainage system and sump pump in our basement a couple years ago so we could finish it. It's been working fabulously. Today? The hot water tank sprung a major leak and of course it didn't drain to the floor drain - it seems to have found it's way under our new cork floor. The sub floor is actually designed to let some moisture underneath it, but 30 gallons? Ugh. DH says so far he hasn't found anything suspicious, but where did it all go?
And to add insult to injury, with all the rain we're getting the electrical conduit that runs underground from our basement to our detached garage is trickling water in behind the finished wall as well. *sigh* Can't win...
We finally get a refrigerator back today at least. So we get cold food back, but no hot water.
