    Gawd, I hope you have good waterproofing on your basement.

    After this crazy winter in most places, those waterproofing companies are going to get ALOT of work.

    Water proofing in the basement, haha, thats funny. Yeah right, stone foundation under a 1/4 of the house, Root cellar dirt floor under one other small section, the rest is dirt crawl space. Basement floor is concrete but only about five years ago, and even in the summer months when it rains the water runs through it. The sump pump never stops running from the end of March to about the end of May. The float already stuck on about three weeks ago we had about 24 hours of rain, and I had 8" of water down there one morning. The dipstick that did the yard work when they redid the house put a drain out back, it would work great if water ran up hill. It about 2' higher than the lowest spot in the back yard which is right up against the back of the house! Its a rental or I would do something about it myself. I am just here until I buy a place, have one in mind but its a private sale and she is elderly. She is procrastinating what she wants to do.

    No our mouth breathing brain dead chief of police went on the nightly news the night of the fire, and said he was already in the process of filing charges etc. Then a week later he said the guy was not liable, it was an accident! He and his second in command could frig up a free meal. I plow the guys driveway, I only see him a couple times a year if he happens to be up from Mass., and it storms. He started talking to me about a few weeks back, I told him I was there that night and new the whole story, I thought he, and his tenant were negligent. He didn't have much to say after that. The old guy his neighbor that owned the barn is 96 years old. He was devastated, and his insurance only covered the barn not the clean up. The guy that used it to store all his hay is out the $4,000.00. A local contractor used the small side part to store all his staging, and a crap load of tools, the insurance wouldn't cover them as the old guy didn't think to say they were his. The adjuster asked who's tools and he said Reggie's. So they said no coverage on them. Needless to say the guy is not well liked around town, population of about 1,000 it dosen't take long for word to get around. He has only owned his place for about a year and a half. The old guy was one of the founding members of our fire dept.
