Down in the Cement Pond...

Joy. All the rain has caused the local water table to rise to where it is now higher than my basement floor. There's a good solid inch of water down there now with another couple of days of heavy rain to come. This past weekend I'd just managed to dry out the smallish amount of water that seeped in during the last big storm. Bother.

The one silver lining is that Sunday I got motivated to apply polyurethane to the two cabinets I've been building, and put them up on saw horses to make it easier. Thus they are currently high and dry. Go me! I did have to slog around down there picking some other boxes and pieces of wood up out of the drink, but I seem to have caught it fairly early.

Now off to Home Depot to purchase some sort of pump. I don't think the wet vac is gonna do it this time.
