Came home from class on my bus, which had to trek through foot-deep pools of water due to drains backing up.

Seems my apartment suffered a similar fate.

By this I do NOT mean the interior of my apartment was a foot deep in water, but if the drains around it hadn't been cleared, it could have been. Fortunately the amount of water seeping in to our below-ground-floor apartment was only enough to soak the edges of our carpets in each room bordering the perimeter... on which edges most of our electronics lie. Fortunately, there was no electronic damage whatsoever. My mattress, though, which does not have a frame, did sop up a lot of moisture. Not enough to damage it, though - my fan is doing adequate drying work right now.

So we're fortunate in a number of ways. Just inconvenienced. Our landlord ordered a carpet cleaning service, which is coming later. Low stress. Though we did have to turn all our computers (and wireless router) off just to be safe. Meh! Productivity on my laptop, Internet on my iPhone.

This rain is crazy!
It's a STATE EMERGENCY!

(http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2004049820_webweather03m.html) The title of the article made me think it was about Mr. Arnold, but then I remembered that we don't have The Terminator as our governor anymore. :\

Re the above comment: If you have a full-sized mattress AND really do want a frame, I have one that I'm not using.

Wow, that is a crazy article. Completely underwater parking garage? Glad I sold my car.

Thanks for the offer! But my mattress is just a twin. Would be a good idea to finally get that thing off the floor, though.
