Rain Rain Go Away 1 - WW Denslow - Project Gutenberg etext 18546.jpg


Water everywhere!





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.
