polar vortex event. maine was balls cold[er than usual] and we got over a foot [on top of another foot] of snow. glorious. except when i remember i have to shovel a driveway that is 3 cars wide and 2 cars long. before work. but anywho. its been 40+ the past week and eeerything is flooding. i live at the bottom of a hill, well away from the 100 year flood line at the river and the coast... but mini rivers traverse my basement pretty much every time it rains more than a drizzle. [increase in floodage since 2 days ago not pictured]
thank god no one ever decided to finish the basement .. cos that would just be terrible and moldy. i conquer the water by ... pouring vinegar and lysol around and mostly ignoring it. the sump pump kicks on every 45 minutes while its raining... and i turned on the iiiity bitty exhaust fan to try and get some of the humidity out.
in other news... yes i have a punching bag in my basement. and i bought some supposedly water-resistant subfloor panels for underneath, and welp this will be the ultimate test.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
yessssss ocd organization! i have one of these handy dandy garage-strength shelves in my bedroom as a ... faux dresser, and in an attempt to help my i-have-a-very-small-subcompact-mini-cooper-that-doesnt-transport-anything problem, my parents picked up the shelf and pegboard for me!
the other woe here.... is now that all my shit is organized it is more and more apparent that i need to rewire the basement so all the lights work and there is more than one grounded working outlet. DAMNIT. i also need a workbench that isnt the wobbly wee wheeled table pictured at the very bottom left. i bought it for a grand total of $5 at salvation army with intentions of dismantling and reassembling without the wobble. that has not occurred as of yet.
