Uh oh...

What do you get when you cross a porous foundation with 3" of steady rain in 24 hours? Why, a wet basement of course! We spent the better part of the summer installing drainage in the backyard but it wasn't enough to prevent the scene we awoke to Sunday morning.
So, now the question is, what do we do now? Luckily, our basement is unfinished and we probably only took on about 1 gallon of rain water. No harm done yet. But we have big plans for this space and 1 gallon of water puts a serious crimp in those plans.
