Holy crap, how can that be? You fixed the foundation!!! Where does the crap enter your cellar? I feel really sorry for you and your family :disappointed:I'm so happy to hear that they can remove that annoying little tumor. I recall how much grief that little bastard was giving you last year. At one point you seemed pretty despondent about it and the trouble it was causing you. Thank God there is a light at the end of the tunnel for you! Yay for Sam!
As for me, well, good and bad. Family is great. We are so happy. @CrudeSasquatch is here visiting, so that's been fun. Job is amazing, I'm certainly happy there.
House...well that's where the bad starts. If you recall, our house flooded back in April, and we lost our finished basement. Well, months later, and many thousands of dollars (including a fleet refund to help pay for it all) and we had our basement rebuilt and our foundation fixed. Yay!
Well, we woke up at 0400 this morning, and our basement has flooded again with sewer water. We lost everything. All our new construction, all of our sons toys, all of the furniture, all of the new carpeting, all of it. Every damn thing that was on the floor. Our new bathroom that we had built, all the walls in the basement. The flooding was exponentially worse than last time.
I don't know how to feel right now. I'm kinda numb. We've been fighting for the last six hours to salvage what we can.
This is what it looks like now,after we've removed everything we can.

Our house is build in a slope. The cellar walls aren't particular waterproof (really sandy) and our sewage system is kind of "old style", but hard to reach. When we have a constipation in the sewer, the ground can get saturated, even when it rains a lot for a long period of time, our ground can get saturated. Happened twice last 10 years. First time was sewer water, with heavy rain, second time was only heavy rain, the day before our holiday I had to convince my wife that it wasn't the sewer.
