A + B = C -and- C = D

C = D

We came home from 5 days in Phoenix to 2 inches of water in our basement. I guess it was pretty warm while we were gone. We Shop Vac-ed up about 40 gallons. This will be our life for the next 5 weeks or so. Keeping up with it everyday should be easier than our rude surprise upon returning home. And eventually it will taper off as things dry out around here.
We have yet to install a drainage system to hopefully avoid this problem. Our land has a slight incline to it and not only do we get absorption from what's immediately around our house, we also get some of what comes from uphill.
We've had 85 inches of snow this winter. It's going to be a looooonnnnnng spring of mud, muck and water in the basement. Hopefully we'll get a ditch and drainage built soon.

    Here's me wishing that we could have had more than a dusting of snow this winter. It looks as though the thaw is quite a problem at times for you. I hope it dries out quickly.
