Another great day!

Worked today. Nicely busy, with enough help.

After, I went over to the house to see how it was doing in the rain.

The basement leaks.

There was a pretty good stream going to the sump pump, with a current.

In the opposite corner, a puddle was forming.  Along two of the walls there were areas where water was coming in. One traveled a little before puddling, the others streamed to the sump.


I stayed for a bit to see what was going to happen. The rain stopped, the water slowed, then stopped, and I sopped up the larger puddles. The stream to the sump stopped, too. During that couple hours of rain, the sump came on at least twice. That's a lot of water.

I spent the time putting the stuff on the shelves in some kind of order, and and managed to get most of the items off of the floor. That was a good thing.

Frank had put a tarp over the boat in the garage, because that leaks, too.  And, yes, the water was running off of the tarp.  I knew that was the area that dripped, and had the idea to tarp whichever vehicle was going to be in that spot.

The new roofs cannot come soon enough, as far as I'm concerned. And I hope the drainage issue will be addressed.  A short rainstorm is one thing; a several day drencher is another.

Anyway, tomorrow is another work day.

Thank you for reading. Hugs.
