The Mariana Trench

As I mentioned in a previous post, a glacier developed between our home and our neighbors' house. This is the due to the fact that (apparantly) a spring resides under our houses. Ah. I suppose this explains why our sump pump is constantly working, regardless of whether or not is has rained in the last two weeks.

We have worried about the implications of this...what if our pump broke? How unsafe is this glacier? How ugly the area will be in the spring when it gets swampy? Fortunately, Nate is brilliant.

He devised a "French Drain" and installed it last Saturday.

What, specifically, makes the drain French? Regardless, looks like it did the trick!
