    I woke up this morning at my home in Central Maryland, watched the news saying it had rained heavily since the evening before, and realized I hadn't heard my basement sump pump go on at all. Hoping the fact I was seldom in the part of the house where I could hear it was the reason, I nervously checked the basement: DRY! Today is a good day!
