Missed 1 day of work due to water in basement....

Saturday, June 21, 2014

Water was pouring straight in through a basement window. And then it kept raining and raining. Shop vacuumed about 150 gallons during the day on Thursday and thought I wouldn't make it to work on Friday but after a couple hour rest I felt "normal" again. Had Juan check out the gutters and downspouts and found a giant clog of pine needles and then the rest of the rain water drained away from the house.

Will be doing some repairs on landscaping and gutters. Getting an estimate for drain tiling and sump pump as I am getting too old for this ****.

Still have some residual mud and water in the basement and it is supposed to rain again this evening.

It has rained so many days in a row so I can't even mow the grass until it dries out. Hopefully I can get the front yard mowed today and the back yard later next week.

First we had drought and now we are having floods. Beautiful Minnesota.

    Sorry about the mess. We need to check our gutters today since DS is home. At least we haven't had water in the basement-yet. Rain is good but just a little at a time, please.
