Training Sunday, 3/9/08

Turned into a tough weekend for exercising. After work Friday, we went to calling hours for a fwe minutes before meeting some friends for dinner and a fun night out at the musical Avenue Q, a Broadway traveling show using Muppet-like charactes but with some rather funny and exceedingly crude humor. We all had a good time, but were pretty whooped by the time we got home.

Friday night the area got hit with quite a snowstorm which lasted into early Sunday morning. Sleet, freezing rain, and snow led to shoveling, snow blowing, and eventually a sump pump failure that left our basement flooded. This, in turn, led to considerable scrambling as we attempted to salvage what we could, got some dehumidifiers hooked up, hauled water-logged cardboard boxes to the garbage, and brought soaked carpets upstairs into the garage to drain and dry out.

Not sure what caused the sump pump not to kick on -- I was able to manually start it after rooting around in the well for a bit -- once it dries and warms up in teh basement, I'll have to explore further. In the meantime, we're hoping the dehumidifiers perform some miracles...
