Note to midwesterners
Or anywhere else you've been getting the rain we have -
If you have a sump pit, check it out to make sure it'* working. Either fill it with water till the pump kicks on, or lift the actuator (with a broom handle, etc - don't touch it directly. Odds are you wouldn't get hurt if you did activate it with your hand, but where water and current are involved, best to play it safe).
A 5 minute check could save you a whole lot of trouble.
