Last night’s storm dropped 1/2 inch of rain in about 15 minutes.
I’m sitting in my bedroom hearing gushes of rain. Coming from the eavestroughing.
Out the window I see the water pouring right down onto the cement foundation. Right where we don’t want H2O to accumulate (seepage in the basement and all that entails!!).
So, out I head to the downspout. I see the problem. Up by the roof.
Haul out the step ladder. Place it by the downspout. Climb up. The ground gives way. I grab the eavestrough. Hang for a second while pushing the ladder back. Happens again. Push back again.
The third time wasn’t lucky. I relax as I fall. The grass is like a carpet. I hardly notice.
Back up once more. This time the rain is pretty well done. I fix the downspout. Head into the house. The clothes go into the wash. I shower. The bed feels great.
Another day, another adventure.
