Well, I've had to throw out just over 200 books so far, some of them with sentimental value (ones I inherited from my late father, for instance). And there are a few others which may yet have to get added to that "toss" pile.

But the basement itself seems fine -- no mold, no long-term lingering dampness -- and I've benefited from the experience in that the surviving books are now stored in waterproof containers. Oh, and I now have a sump pit with a pump in it.  :-)

So it could have been much worse.

Everyone else on my street flooded, too, and none of them has ever done so before, so I at least feel *less* stupid for having books in cardboard boxes down in the basement.

Oh, no. I'm so sorry; I heard through the grapevine that you guys had gotten some water in the basement, but not that it was that bad. That can't be much fun.

Sympathy back at you, and hopes that the cleanup goes as quickly (and cheaply) as possible. Fingers crossed...
