We Spoke Too Soon…

Rained last night.  A puddle of water is now mocking us on the porch.  Good thing we got outdoor furniture.

New plan to rid the porch of water:

  1. Remove the silt from the patio that has eroded off the hill from various rainstorms (that way the water will not come up as high on the side of the porch)
  2. Figure out where the water is coming from (definitely not from under the door, since it’s dry there, but probably either side of the door) by dragging the hose back there and spraying
  3. Fix any new-found holes
  4. Add a french drain onto the patio near the side of the house and a little farther up to redirect the water from the side of our house
  5. Pray
