Those of us who have basements,and are unlucky enough to have a high water table under their house,know the hassles,when heavy rains set in and last for long periods.You just get tired of dealing with the water and the mopping and the dry vac and pumps.So one of the solutions is to put a french drain in your basement.
What is a french drain? A one foot wide trench carved out all around the edges of your basement floor and a pipe with holes in it is laid into the trench and covered with small stone and cemented over again. This has been my last two days lisening to a jack hammer,which turned out to be a lot harder than they had thought.The basement looks like a bomb went off in it,they had to take out the bottom part of my stairs going down into the basementso now you have to jump down,piles of dirt and concrete everywhere,and wondering was all this worth the money and aggravation.
Hope everyone is doing ok,I'm sure if there are any gossip or stories from the WU,someone will fill me in.
Weatherwise we are stuck in one of our typical cool wet springs.Flow off the cold ocean is continuing,with only abrief break on Friday.More unsettled weather over the weekend into next week.
