I was awakened this morning by the sound of the shop vac being run in the kitchen. I came out to see what was going on, and our whole kitchen, hallway, guest bathroom, and laundry room were completely flooded! What happened was, our water softener has been acting up, and every so often our water gets really salty - like ocean water. The softener people have come out to "fix" it multiple times, but it keeps happening anyway. Jason went to get a drink this morning and it was salty, so he turned on the laundry room sink to get all the salt water out of the system while he went downstairs to work out. He'd been down there for about 15 minutes when he noticed that water was coming through the ceiling! He came upstairs to find everything flooded with salt water - the laundry room sink had been plugged! So we spent a fun morning cleaning up all the salt water. At least we had the shop vac to help! Jason just bought that a couple of days ago... quite serendipitous!

Oh my gosh, what a way to start the day! It's almost funny :-) Shop vacs are pretty awesome though, what a great invention eh? :)
