Like so many Ottawans,we have a leaking basement. We suspect the cause is blocked eavestrophing and massive amounts of rainfall. I can't do anything about the rain but I can clean the eaves and repair the eroded area around the house.
This is not how I wanted my first visit back to go down. In and out in a whirlwind of stress, muddy leaves and shwarma. I'll likely leave tomorrow and return Friday morning.
Add to this that our car seems to be on its last legs and it makes for a really shit week.
Except for the cottage and some sun which makes it a bit better.
