Spring has sprung. Certainly in our basement it has sprung. Srung a leak that is. Never, ever have we had a wet basement in all the houses we have owned. This house has always rated highest on our list of best built houses that we have lived in. Often we have told visitors that it is by far the straightest, truest house we've ever owned.
So it was a great surprise this morning to wake up to a couple of inches of water in the back half of the basement. Despite our ongoing efforts to tame the stream, it has remained at a couple of inches all day. Fred has completely removed the snowbank outside the room that is leaking. He has re-directed the eaves trough downspout. We stacked all the furniture in a drier room and have spent the day mopping and vacuuming with the shop vac. The water comes in still.
