I had some flood problems. My basement storage room flooded and started coming into my Bar room. Well not into it but underneath the wood laminate floor. I wouldn't really be that upset if that was it. But also the spare bedroom in the basement flooded all in one corner. The whole room didn't get wet but one corner is pretty soaked. It sucks. I don't really know what to do. Right now I have the carpet partially pulled up and fans running on it top dry it off but its probably gonna smell down there. I have to air that shit out and see what happens. Gonna borrow a wet-vac from my cousin later on tonight for the storage room.
My basement is already finished and I hear its about $3000-5000 for a french drain on an UN-finished basement. So I imagine its a lot more to do it now. This blows. Mandy is already panicking and looking into getting a home equity loan to do all these things because we can't really be throwing that much money around. And we have one of her friends' husband coming out to see what our options are.
Fuck Irene that sickle bitch.
Ouch, that sucks man. Have you gotten water under the laminate before? I've heard that shit can peel, I don't really know for sure though. Hopefully not. Even though this is a worst case scenario like Jim said, it's probably still a good idea looking into a drain or pump. It's done my sister and Joe wonders. I hear you on the money though. Just sucks ass.
So the secret worst thing that happened to my place was this giant bee hive I discovered right behind my car in the driveway. I saw there was a bee crawling on it so I knew it had to be bad news. Bought some spray and doused the shit out of it. There still wasn't too much movement but I did see a few more bees. I grabbed a rake, braced myself, and beat the shit out of it to see what I could stir up. A few flew out. I decided to flip it with the rake and there were a shit ton of them dying on the ground. I gave it some time, then I moved it right under my tire and ran it over. I think it's pretty well done. They weren't looking good though, they must have been kind of water logged from the start.
