when it rains, it floods.

When I woke up this morning we were in the midst of a thunderstorm. I went downstairs like normal, walked into the bathroom to open the window, and stepped in a puddle. The water that was entering through the bathroom wall was back. Last year I had that side of the house dug up and the foundation was sealed. I’m really pissed that it already failed.

I don’t have spare towels anymore and it’s going to keep raining. Right now I have a blanket and the bathroom hand towel against the wall in hopes that it’ll soak it up and hold it back from the rest of the basement. I don’t have the money to fix this outside of bandaid repairs like last year, so I’m basically fucked. This is a tens of thousands of dollars thing because there needs to be drains and grading to redirect the water to the street. The house will fall down before I can afford that 🤦🏻‍♀️
