We Had a Pool In Our Basement

Sometimes I’ll get a mental block as to what to write about and I’ll go around asking people for inspiration and ideas.

This particular blog was recommended by Finn, my son. He wanted me to write about the flood we had in our house.

I don’t know if you remember but about 4 weeks ago we had a ton of rain.

We’ve been living in our current home for about 6 years. And we have never gotten water in our basement.

So when it rains, I am never anxious about getting water in the house.

When we had the severe rain about a month ago, I noticed the insane amount of downpour, and decided to check the basement. The basement was bone dry and that’s what I totally expected.

My wife, Sarah, and I decided to watch a movie. My mind was totally into the movie and the intense rain was not even on my mind.

After the movie was done, Finn looked into the backyard and said, “Dad our yard is like a swimming pool.” I looked at our backyard and it was the most water I’d ever seen.

As I was walking to the basement, I could hear the slushing of water and I remember thinking, “Oh no! This doesn’t sound good.”

Next, I turned on the basement light and our entire basement was filled with about 6 inches of water.

I could hear the sump pump going, but the water was coming in quicker than the sump pump could remove it.

Sarah, Finn and I, all grabbed some buckets and began to remove the water, 3 buckets at a time. As we were running out to the front curb, pouring out our buckets full of water, our neighbors began coming out of their houses to see how they could help.

One of our neighbors, John, has every gadget you could imagine. One of the things he owns is a water pump.

He came over to our house and set up the water pump in our basement. This pump began to remove the water at a quicker pace than we were accomplishing with our 3 buckets. It took hours to remove the water, but what originally seemed to be a very annoying day became an almost fun group project.

Knowing that people have your back and any obstacle could be overcome. For me doing it as a group always seems to be more fun. There is a camaraderie about it.

It’s one of the things I love about our office. Everyone has each others back and no one says, “That’s not my job.” In fact, the attitude is, “How can I help?”

This type of culture is what people feel when they walk into our office. Patients express it to me all the time.

It’s one of my proudest things about our business.

Floss like a madman!Emilio “Need A Dive Board” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
