RE-Blogged from my young son’s Blog… http://mytreasureisjesus.blogspot.com/
It rained really hard this past week. We got water in our basement, I mean a LOT of water. We had to get the shop vac out and suck up all the little streams that we going across the floor down there.
Now it smells moldy, and my Mom is really upset. I sketched out a plan to drain the water from the back yard into the alley beside our house. The back yard is kind of at an angle that lets the rainwater flow down to our patio. My Dad says that the people who designed our house did not think ahead.
Now we get water in the basement every time a flash flood comes. So I drew out a sketch, and today Mom and I dug out canals and put in drainage pipes to get the rain water to flow out to the alley instead of into our basement.
