I don't get it???  The week starts out with 3 major snow storms and today it gets to 60 with downpours of rain!!!!  Our basement has a foot of water in it and all our stuff is floating!  I am worried about the freezer we have down there that is plugged in and running.  Also the furnace, water tank, etc.. I first noticed something was wrong when the furnace kicked on.  It was rattling and smelled weird.  It also had humidity coming from the vents!  I am terrified of electricution and knowing the freezer is sitting in water I don't want to chance going down there!  There is no sump pump and don't know what to do?  AAaargh!!! >:(

I'd suggest calling for professional help. Of course, everyone else is doing so as well so you would probably at the end of a long list.
Just as an aside, need I mention that stuff like that does not happen down here? God loves the South. At least since the War of Northern Aggression that is.

 :(That's terrible!  I'm afraid that you'll have to replace your furnace, the water might cause it to warp, thusly rendering it unsafe.  Good luck on resolving this problem.

Well by 11pm most of the water was pumped out.  The plumber won't be here until this after noon.  All is warm in here and the land lord has more heaters we can use or they offered us to stay with them or in a hotel. Won't do that unless absolutely necessary.  They are great people, how many landlords would offer to help transport you and all your fids to stay in there home?
Right now the gas is off.  The plumber will look into the flood and the furnace.  My dad had 24 inches of water in his basement last year and both the furnace and hot water tank made it through...hopefully we will be as lucky.
This is scary and nerve wracking and I am not looking forward to my days of cleaning up.  I will have to get some help in doing this...and a couple of chiropractor appts.  I will have to see if there is enough garbage down there to rent one of those garbage dump things or if it will be do-able with just hauling it to the road in contractor bags.
Eric...get ready for the clean up!
Wish us luck!
