We have a back up generator - but not the kind that automatically kicks in. But they have a type of pump with a built in battery back up that would kick in while we sleep. That's what we were thinking of.

Bob walked out to his plant frames and said there was about 5 inches of water around them and around our septic tank covers. Great--all we need is problems with the septic--but so far so good (fingers and toes crossed!). We have gotten about 12 inches of rain this week.

But it's also been some great working weather for me--no distractions! laugh

And I think we shall see some sun next week--yea!
