I was absolutely convinced that my basement would be floating when I finally got home. So I made a deal with my dad. Yes..my dad who passed away last month.

So, let's start with WHY I thought my basement was flooded. After I was IN the storm at the height of the deluge, I just KNEW that my basement was not handling it well.

Why was I out in the storm? Because I had an early 'Cans for a Cure' pick up! Great Falls Marketing had a ton of bottles and cans! But by the time I was done, I was completely soaked!!


On my way home, through all the flooded streets - I made a deal with Dad. I've been looking for a sign from him. You know...just so I know he's around. I told dad that if my basement WASN'T flooded, then it was a sign from him. I was going all out since I was 100% convinced that my basement WAS flooded. I figured, if it wasn't flooded, it was a definite sign from dad...and a small miracle!

My basement had some puddles...but was NOT flooded. I cannot tell you how excited I was. Not only at the fact that my basement survived that storm, but that DAD WAS AROUND! I just kept saying over and over again, 'Thanks Dad!'

There I was a soaked rat, exhausted and never happier...
