    Crisis Temporarily Diverted...

    I was able to get enough water out of the pool to keep the down poor at bay while I pushed water away from the house..

    Ive been working on trying to clear my drains as well. Looks like there's a bunch of mulch and what not that got clogged somewhere along the line.

    Anyways, Ill post an update later tonight, hopefully with some pictures as well.

    What a way to spend time off....... :mad:
