A baling out evening, after a violent storm that flooded the basement up to the first steps to the ground floor. With a few neighbourghs we made a human chain with buckets, but we had to give up after almost 3 hours for it was a Sisyphus' task, we tried to dig little chanels to drive running waters toward the road and away from our houses. We were all soaked to the skin as if we had fall into 1 meter high of water (which actually happened to my neighbourgh Brigitte!)
The rain has stopped now (it's 10 pm here) and the water level is very slowly decreasing into the basement. We are waiting for the firemen though, who are coming as soon as possible with a water pump. We are not a priority for them, as some poor people have some water not into the basement but into the house. I wonder what the river Seine will look like tomorrow morning...
