Our new swimming pool

So here are a few pictures from the basement on Saturday night. This was about an hour and a half into pumping water out. You can see the water marks on the wall about how high it was. In the pictures of the stairs you can see that there is one step still covered and two above that were wet. We (and by we, I mean Trenton) got it completely water free last night. Swept out the miscellaneous straw and debris. Only to wake to about another foot of water this morning! Fantastico! Really super glad we (and again, I mean Trenton) didn't hook up the new water heater yesterday. Nelson's should have the parts to fix the furnace on Wednesday. Apparently the pump Trenton bought yesterday at Home Depot didn't kick in during the night. And to top that off, my office ceiling is leaking water on and around my desk! Tada! I'm thinking about taking swim lessons if this keeps up because I'm getting nervous about what water "situation" I might be in next!

yum-o...can't you just strap that new water heater to that ledge/shelf that runs around the perimeter? that looks like a much safer place!

WOW...I won't tell Emma, or she will want to come over and check it out. You might want to start carrying an umbrella...just in case!

OH bless your heart! I came here to tell you I was touched by your comment on my blog and I almost felt a twinge of jealousy at the words 'new swimming pool' but then eek! Poor thing! I hope things get all dried out very soon. Your washer and dryer weren't down there, were they?
