Water in our Lives

Can anyone tell me what is up with water and my basement lately? Yesterday, Katelyn woke me up to tell me that there was a pipe or something leaking from our drop ceiling in the basement. Sure enough, I moved the warped and soaking wet ceiling tile to find a leak in the pipe. It was just spraying nicely all over. See the washcloth wrapped around the pipe?

So here's the pail and mop that we've been using faithfully. Anytime now, our plumber friend is supposed to be over to replace the pipe. At least we don't have any carpet there now to get wet!

Things usually happen in 3's so I'd watch your pool!!!!
Seriously, that is frustrating. I'm sure you're thankful though that Jack is willing to help you out with plumbing needs!

Noooo! That's about enough water problems over there!

You have had enough water problems for one year.

We are preparing for hurricane season this time. We have a walk in basement and the water usually comes in under the door. This time we bought a tarp to make an awning to put over the stairway to keep the water out when there is a hurricane. Sometimes we get as much as 5 inches of rain. As soon as we get the hooks in the cement, we will be ready.

Hope you get this water pipe fixed soon.
