So here I am at 10pm once again pumping water out of my basement with a shop vac.
Just across the drive from the front of the house is a field that slopes gently down the hillside our farm is on. And whoever built the house apparently never heard of a French drain. Come to think of it, neither had I before we moved in here, but everyone who has visited unanimously agrees that we need one. - Last winter we only once had some seepage in the furnace room but this year has been more of an inundation... after three days of soaking rain I always know it's coming.
I think I foresee some digging projects this summer. Just what I need to get in better shape!
