I was on the computer and happen to look out my window and couldn't believe my eye!!!
Water was raising to window level from the front porch which meant it was atleast 12" high!! We've had soo much rain the ground just doesn't take it in anymore!
I ran to the garage grabbed what I could use to dig a quick run off and went to work!! I didn't want to take the time to take pictures at that point I just wanted the water off the porch somehow!!!
These picture are after
i got it to run off .. First I changed the direction of the gutter run off Yep I had to run it into the flower
beds that were already saturated, but they can easliy be replaced, ( Better to replace flowers
than floors and walls in the house!)
Then I moved some landscaping stones so that water
would have somewhere to go!
Then I dug 2 thrench to run off into the yard Geeeeeez I'm glad I was home and noticed it!!!!
See in this pic the cherub sitting on the ball? The water was covering the ball! My window isn't far from there!flower
bed I directed the water and moved stones so the water would flow out
In the next post you can see the depth of the two stones which is about 4 inches below the window! the water was that high!
