Today I decided it was time to finally make an outfeed table for the tablesaw. The rain has been biblical of late. I just finished cutting a piece of plywood, when I realized what was happening.

It doesn’t look like much, but it was almost an inch deep running for about 30 minutes. I had been working out there for close to an hour when this snuck up on me.

Be careful with the electrics. Great time to make sure your ground wires are good. Be safe.

I should be good there, I ran the wires down from the ceiling to the outlets. They are 48” above floor. I had a drainage system installed when the garage was built in 99. I’ve had a little before, but not much. It was just too much rain.

While I certainly do NOT want all of it, I would appreciate it if you sent SOME of that rain my way. We are in a drought right now…

Sorry to see your flooding. Been there, done that, hate it.

Wow! That certainly puts a damper on things! Hope you dry out soon! – Though it looks like rain is in your future for a while yet. I was in Cincinnati many, many, many moons ago. It’s a nice town.

Hope you got all the important stuff raised, off the floor.

Can’t imagine what that’s doing to the humidity levels in your shop. Yuck.

I feel your pain this happens almost every time it rains in my neck of the woods. But like DB said we haven’t had any rain in a long time.

Man bummer when rain comes in your great looking shop. Hope it dries up and you up and running ASAP. We don’t get much rain here in Southern California but once in a while we get a good storm.
