Default flippin flappin melting snow.

Here'* a little math fun.



What do you get when you have 90" of snow, then add spring, then add in one sump pump that stops working? Well, you get this.









Well, that'* one unexpected run to the hardware store.

I think it just died because my wife said last night, is the pump always so loud? I said it sounds like the check valve. We dont use the basement for much, the doors in the floor and is a pain to get down there.

Somehow I don't think I want to be dangeling my feet in that yucky water.

Big snowstorm coming in here for Wed, Thurs, Friday. Glad I put a little antifreeze in the IC, but I think I'll run the other car late in the week.
