do we have to call them ‘freedom drains’ now…

or is that whole hating-the-French thing too 2003?

I meant to write about this last week, though I was kind of afraid of jinxing myself. But I feel the need to update you all on the success of last year’s basement-refinishing project. Plus, there are all those people whose basement-related search hits land them here.

Today’s? ‘basement in Texas’ Uh, I’m pretty sure that all of those words appear somewhere on my blog. Not sure it’s in the same post, though.

Anyway, despite the monsoon-like rain that we received last week, our basement held, and stayed totally dry. At least one of our neighbors had her entire basement flood. So if you’re thinking about installing French drains, I’d have to say, go for it. Our sump pumps ran day and night, but there was nary a leak.
