Things around here are quite soggy this morning!
We have been dealing with round after round of thunderstorms since yesterday morning.
They continued through out the night.
We were up around 4 a.m. to check the sump pump in the basement.
It had been pumping non-stop all night long. It was keeping up, but the pipeliner decided to add another little pump to help it along.
Then we put the plug in the basement drain.
This little plug has been a life saver!!
A little water had already seeped in. Nothing that the shop vac couldn't handle.
A few years back we lost a whole furnished basement while we were off pipelining!
I never want to go through that again!
I just got back from taking a walk around the neighborhood.
Lots of people with garden hoses stuck out of their basement windows.
The pond continues to rise.
One of the neighbors paddle boat floated toward our house.
Our dock is standing up out of the water.
The people in the house across the pond have been erecting a sandpile wall. Hoping to stop the water from coming in their house.
I sure hope it doesn't get that high!
But its getting close!
Mother Nature, turn off those April showers,
we have plenty for our May flowers!
