I hate down pours

  I live in an area where when we get heavy rain you have to worry about flooding in your basement. It is a major pain in the rear to say the least. It usually seems to happen when I am home alone & have to deal with the flooding alone.
  My husband has been a drummer off & on for years. He has a very expensive drum set that is set up in our basement. I have a few problems with this. For starters that is where we have family  our get together & they take up way to much room. The second problem is he refuses to keep them off the floor. If it starts flooding he expects me to run down there & try to break down this huge, heavy set & move it. It is not something I can really do myself. I am also worried about other stuff that may need to be gotten up in the mean time.
  We know the stuff should be kept up but with 4 kids, it happens. I am getting ready to leave after lunch to take the older girls to the dentist. There will be maybe a 3 hour span where no one is home to watch the basement. It is pouring out and that means the potential of flooding. He told me last night to get the floor picked up in case the rain hit but did not do anything with him drums. I am wondering how long it will be before he is texting or calling about it.
  I better get moving. I still have to try to pump more milk for Maddie's cereal. Abby is not up yet & I still have to make lunch. Brooke is irritated I made her get up to shower before the storm hit, oh well. 
  Here is to hoping I come home to a dry basement.....

    We have been having massive rains where I live too. In fact it has been the wettest July in 61 years. Our flood area is the garage. (Old and not attached to the house)so we can't store anything in there.

    Hope the drum kit was ok.
