Still some water but, under the ice it was moving. I extended my trenches to move more out. A small area in front of the gate to the field held the most water still. Hopefully it'll drain by tonight. I also ran out to TSC and picked up 50 lbs of crushed oyster. It's something you put down for chickens and I found a few years back it helps with traction on ice. I'm prepared now, hopefully I won't need it now. Kind of like if you have your umbrella it won't rain lol.
Back to the basement: I'd thought midday yesterday to turn on the exhaust fan so we wouldn't have the putrid smell we get with heavy rains. Standing at the top of the stairs looking down, I see a puddle! Yes a puddle in the basement!
We have 2 sump pumps, between the snow melt and rain they couldn't keep up. Of course Hubs is at work but, at least I didn't have the boys as I normally would. I hustled to get things not in Rubbermaid containers up to the laundry room, thankfully only a few old text books were ruined. The indoor/outdoor carpet is questionable, I used the shop vac most of the day till my wrists were killing me. t this point I'm thinking toss the d*#^ carpet lol. Could've been so much worse though once the rain stopped the sumps were able to do their job so the basement flood was basically a basement puddle.
Hubby is home tomorrow so we'll figure it out.
