Why I Should Exercise! by HeRoos

By HeRoos.

There are several reasons I should be exercise. Just a few are

1. My doctor called me fat.
2. I would like to run and not grow weary, walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:30-31).
3. I would like to see my kids graduate from kindergarten.
4. I spent a lot of money on exercise equipment.

But this morning I found a new reason to go to our exercise room more then once a month: I may catch water pouring in from the window BEFORE our basement floods.

I found this around 9:30 AM this morning. This is after I had used a bucket to bail out the foot of water in the window well.



And this is what it looked like a couple of hours later.

We had that one year when a nail came out of our rain gutter and all of the run off got dumped in the window well below where it was leaning down. If you need help I have some time and would love to help. This is the pits!.

Suddenly I'm very thankful that I don't have a basement! Last time I had to clean up a flooded mess was at the Alpha Phi house. Yuck!

We had a very similar thing happen in our basement last year. The rain gutter next to the window well went into the ground, but didn't continue downhill, so it flooded. It was the pits! Hope you can get it all fixed before too long.
