This morning I wanted to get something out of my cellar.
When I looked down the stairs....
it was not as usual.
There had formed a something on the floor which should no be there.

All the floor was flooded with water!
When I took a closer inspection...wading through the water..
I saw I had forsaken to close the drain-cock...for the tap outside,
to prevent it from freezing.
it was dripping...drip drip...not very fast...
yet over the weeks, many drips had formed a deep flood.
10 cm!

A very kind neighbour helped me out of drowning.
with his pumping engine he pumped all the water out.
Thanx so much E!
