Wasn't a bad leak, just surprising.
The dirt outside the basement window had piled up like 8 inches since it was built. Last year I dug it clear and went another 6 or so below it. Then shortly after we had a wicked rainstorm that filled that hole up and into my basement. I had to wet vac a couple of inches up. I then cleared and made better drainage for that hole. Now this.

Atheism is a lack of belief in god.

Science sh*ts on your cult every day with REAL evidence, instead of blind lunacy. You are using science to type your sh*t in the atheist forum you stupid clown.

You worship some random Palestinian dudes who penned the Jesus myth?

Oh well this is senile Dave we are talking about.

I worship the creator of Jesus, who is the creator of us all. And the way I do so will not fit any book you read.

I do not worship words. They are the creation of men. Substitutes for material idols. Easy for the unwary to get trapped into it.

The Truth is inside you and everyone. Follow your conscience and you do what is expected of you by that force. Anything else is the trappings of a material existence and a second guessing of that which you can't know.

It all comes out in the wash.

Painted a porch yesterday. It was nice all day long. Spent most it cutting in... and maybe 20 min rolling. As soon as the deck was nice and wet with paint, the sky fell on it. The wind kicked up pretty good and added a fair amount of yard debris along with all the rain.
The porch has a "natural" look to it.

The six month anniversary of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School will be marked this Friday with private and public events.

The Newtown Interfaith Clergy Association has an event planned for Friday night at Fairfield Hills, where residents and visitors of all ages are invited to gather at the soccer fields at 7:30. The fields were the same location of vigils one week, and then two weeks after 12/14, when hundreds of people bundled in winter clothes, fighting tears and bracing temperatures, and cupping their hands around candles in an attempt to bring light into the dark.

This week’s vigil is being called a gathering, A Community-Wide Gathering For Healing and Hope-Building.

The event will be “a time of prayer, song, community and care,” according to organizers, on the six-month anniversary of 12/14. All are invited to share in a time of remembrance, hope, and healing.

“Members of the community including people representing town, school, and other local organizations including first responders and police” are planning to participate, according to Newtown Congregational Church Senior Pastor Matthew Crebbin. Members of the clergy will also participate.

“We will have representatives from the various churches including our Christian community and Islamic society, Jewish, and other faith traditions” all represented, he said this week.

Special events for Newtown residents have slowed in recent months, but they have continued. There have been fundraisers, concerts, dinners, marches and protests, and countless special events.

Residents have tried to be kind to each other, and others have made a point to wear special wristbands, or pins, or even a limited edition nail polish, in an effort to bond together, find strength, to heal.

Newtown’s clergy association has begun offering monthly interfaith gatherings. Friday, June 14, will be the first vigil, or prayer event, or solemn gathering specifically to mark an anniversary of 12/14 in a few months, however.

“I think we recognize that anniversaries bring up all kinds of feelings and emotions for people. What we recognize is that for some people, they would rather not even acknowledge an anniversary, and for others it’s very important to have something,” said Rev Crebbin.“For the clergy, we recognize that many people are in many different places for people on their journey.

“For some, the grief is still very, very raw. Others may be trying to figure out different ways to transition into what life after December 14 is all about,” he added.“What we’re trying to acknowledge is that we can all be in different places, but we are still a community. We are all on the same journey.”

All are welcome to Friday night’s event. Attendees should bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating.

There will also be an opportunity for those gathered to add messages to banners that will be sent to Oklahoma, to send hope to those affected by last month’s fatal tornadoes.

In the event of rain, the gathering will be in the sanctuary of Newtown Congregational Church, at 14 West Street.

Put some firmament in it to separate the water from the water, and add a few pillars, and plug a few portals ...should be fine then...lol

I think I will settle for some plastic to channel the water away for the night. May have a lot more coming. Those things take days, even for gods.

Got my furnace and water heater down there. Ugh.

In any case, I did try and "communicate" with God about the porch.

Admittedly, my tact could probably use a little improvement.

Bilge pump , but it would require a low spot though. Cheap solution boat pump and a battery and some hose.

Yah. Find the low spot in the basement (that takes a bucket of water), dig a small pit, put the pump in. Run the outlet out the downhill window.

I've done this before.
