Prior to water vs boxes
Hooray, they are all here!
Their furniture and boxed possessions arrived with off and on torrential rain. Since the abode is temporary, they put most of their boxes in the basement. Unfortunately the sump pump was not working, and they discovered water sloshing over their shoes at the bottom of the stairs . . . just hours after the movers left.
To make matters more interesting, WE needed to move in with them . . . we lost electric Fri. eve. and got it back Sun. 2am.
Timing, everything is timing.
