that insidious beast

Water, that fine insidious beast, is coming back. Well, we’ve been walking under it pretty steadily since we came be to Seattle actually. But now it’s making inroads again into our basement. This time, however, it’s not coming from the back drain area. In fact, I’m not sure WHERE all it’s coming from – there looks to be multiple locations all generally upwelling from just plain ole oversaturation of groundwater.

I think we’re going to have to consider some constructive and innovative landscape ideas to make this all work out. Not really sure what we’re going to do, but it’ll probably involve way more manual effort of grading soil than I’d like. Heh. At least I’ve done it before, even if it is a terribly tedious and annoying job.
