Another day, another mouth full of nasty water!

This is where the pipe from my sump pump leaves my house.  Why it is almost 6 feet off the ground, I have no idea.  Before it reaches the ground it takes a 90 degree turn and runs out about 10 feet from the house. It's been raining for days and days.  This morning I realized that pipe had become detached and water was dumping right down against the foundation of my house.

And this is me, after not stepping aside soon enough and getting a face full of yummy sump water while attempting to reattach the pipe. Luckily I hadn't showered yet.

And this is what it looked like when I attempted to drive to work today.  After a good 3 hours of getting turned back by police or signs or cones, I gave up and went home.

It's still raining ya'll.  And they're saying tomorrow we might have snow flurries.  Yikes!

So how was your day?  Please say it was better than this!


  1. It's much better where I am, thank goodness. The weather this year has been crazy. We got rain, but not near as much as you did. I don't think spring is ever going to get here.

  2. Oh dear.. we've had some really mixed up weather here as well with terrible floods in some areas, but at the moment it's not too bad, not exactly very Springlike but ok..

  3. Wow! That is a lot of rain and water for sure. I hope the rest of your day improved somewhat. We are expected to get that rain starting tonight. I have an electric blanket adn popcorn, oh I meant carrots and dip. I had a sub pump disaster once and I don't to talk about it.
    Hope today is better

    1. .. and I'm not having ice cream right now. :) The sun came out today - took me awhile to identify it!

  4. You had rain? We had snow! Yuck!!
