Luckily, Jeff was able to tap this brass pipe into an old sealed off drainage pipe that burst in our basement wall.  And divert it right into the sink:

Yes its a mess, but we are fortunate, many in our community had a foot of water in their basements.   

An interesting note about my nursery rhyme quote:  Isaac Asimov wrote a short story entitled: Rain, Rain Go Away.  It has a very “sweet” plot

  1. Oh yuck. I am so sorry. I am also glad I’m not living on 9 Mile. I wonder if that old sump pump was able to keep that basement dry. Hope you dry out soon.
