It has been one busy weekend. I am sore as hell, but it will be nothing compared to tomorrow. Literally a day before winter hit, the basement flooded because of the French drains at the footers. It was a blessing in disguise in more than one way. Firstly, it showed we had a major water leak in our line. Without the flood, we would have had a $4,000 water bill. That one was because I put a hole in the drain running pipe to the pool heater. I spent the weekend digging up 100 feet of drain pipe. The last 20 feet were some cheap-ass pipe that had a few holes in it. The drain was also 20 feet from the end of the hill. Despite 2 days of digging, replacing pipe, and getting completely covered in mud, I still had time to write chapter 12.
