Into paradise, introduce inclement weather.

Yup, it’s November. It rained on and off all night long, waking me up repeatedly. And it has rained on and off all morning. That seep under Ian’s Cave is worse than it’s every been…


With not merely damp but wet concrete greeting me this morning…


I think I’ve identified the perfect location for the new sump that’s going in there, central to the dampest part of the floor but quite unobtrusive, right behind the bathroom door. I can run a hose from the pump behind the shower wall into the drain in the utility closet. Now I just have to negotiate who’s paying for it.

Naturally, since it’s cold wet and windy as hell, I had chores outside the Lair today.


SurvivalDave poured a new slab two days ago, trying to fit it in between Monsoon and the freeze. Since the freeze is supposed to start in earnest tonight, he wanted to to lay down plastic and straw today. Was able to scrounge just barely enough of both.

And then D&L had a doctor’s appointment, so…


…I got to visit the boys for lunch. But now we’re back, Tobie has had his mid-day feed and walkie, and I can sit with a good book for a while.

    Wow, you’ve had water issues there for quite some time! Look at the staining on the door framing and sheetrock to the left of the door opening in picture 2.

    Yeah, you ought to see what it did to the wood paneling I put up in the Spring…

To the stake with the heretic!
