I'm in Columbus for work at it hit up here too. Lots of rain. Glad it didn't reach the bottom of the flooring.

Fresh water is not as dielectric as most people think. Now if that'd been seawater ...

It's only a boat if it floats.

Right now you just have a RV on waterfront property. People pay a premium for lots like that usually.

My bad. Should have read more dielectric. You are correct "not as conductive" would have been better.

Nope. But muddy fresh water is very conductive.
