As I type this, we are getting sleet and freezing rain here in SE WI. We have had over 8 inches of rain in the last 2 weeks, and our finished basement has flooded, creating significant loss. Which, apparently, was not covered by insurance because we didn't have the correct rider on the policy. The words I have for insurance companies right now are unprintable.isewquilts...wet and angry I completely understand. Water, in my home, is what I call my curse element. We've waterproofed the basement, put in dual sumps, purchased a generator, etc., etc. because we had several major losses (Hurricane Floyd, another was an extended power outage during which the basement flooded, etc.).We had the local storm drains get to a level so high they backed up INTO our home, flooding the first floor, so we had a check valve put in. Then, we had ANOTHER sewer overflow that backed up into our home on a clear, dry night, because the local sewer had clogged (unbeknownst to us) and our water softener recycled at the same time, opening the check valve and flooding our home AGAIN - this time with actual sewage, not rainwater. I was *furious*, and the township is responsible for *nothing.* NOTHING. I was so angry, and we ended up having to rip out carpet, drywall, etc., all down to studs. Thank goodness it was on our slab, rather than hardwood. But I do understand your frustration, and I'm so sorry for it. I hope you're able to work through this. GSF
