  • How I survived the Detroit flood of 2014

    I knew right around 2 p.m. that my basement was going to flood. Living in Hamtramck, you get used to it coming every August: A heavy rain that floods you out. If the downpour lasts just a half-hour, you’re OK, but if it persists for an hour, you’re going to get backflow in the basement. If it persists for two, three, four, five hours, you’re going to get it … bad.
