This spring, water started seeping into our garage. I spent a few hours cleaning it out, only to have it reflood. Then hubby emptied it. It flooded again, so we called the landlord and asked if there was anything to do. You see, the garage is built into a hill and the ground was covered in snow. As it melted, it went to the only place it could: our space. Our landlord said there was little we could do and it happened every spring. We had no choice but to park outside. The water level rose and I waited for other tenants' spaces to suffer with us.
It was only fair, RIGHT?
Then, mother nature being evil, it got cold. All the water froze. Our garage had turned into an ice rink. There was about six inches of solid ice. We could have parked on that, but the ice kept the door shut.
Warm weather is teasing Michigan, but we finally got some and were able to chip at the ice. We could have waited, but the garage is in the shade and cold. Who knows how long it would have taken to melt on its own? My whole point in posting this is to show the picture I took. You see the water bottle for reference?
