3. Hi WsDj
Thanks for remembering about my various house projects.
The storm was one of the worst I have ever seen. We had no damage but I am still pumping out the cellar. Have dual pumps and they don't seem to be slowing down.

I live at the base of a hill and the water comes up from the ground, I assume it follows some underground channel and when we get a big storm, it is days before the water that is within the ground to follow down and out. Unfortunately, my neighbor and I get the brunt of it.
This old house has a packed dirt cellar, that part is not the problem. The water comes up through a few week points in the foundation and through the pump bottoms. What a pain. I imaging this will be over in a few more days. Our whole town is built on ledge, I'm not the only one still pumping.

Thanks for your offer of information. I may take advantage of it as my sister finds out more about what in going on. As to the upkeep, it continues and I'm getting a little lazy about keeping up.
