it was like 50 plus for 3 or 4 days and then it started flooding, then the blizzards came. Fuck man, I'm prepared for the Blood River, The Plague and locusts to come next.

Updates?
Water is completely off the flood wall. They are predicting a second crest just as high as the last one so we will see.  We have been adding some sandbags on top of the ground behind the dike to hold back the pressure from the ground from coming up.



Bagged everything except for the Sump Holes



Also, We put plastic covering the ground out about 10 ft from the wall. Were hoping this will cut back on some of the  pressure from coming through the ground, up under the planters and behind the wall.

ground saturates, water table is above the ground level.  water WILL seep in from the lower side, this is how wells for country water work.
Yes The ground is saturated already. We are worried about the hydraulic pressure.

Between bouts of bailing water with buckets do you relax in that fat hot tub?

We used to in 2006, but our power shut off while we were on vacation during the winter a couple years ago, and a couple pipes froze. BTW, we don't bail water with buckets, where did you get that Idea? The 5 Gallon buckets are sunk int the ground and have holes drilled into them. We place sump pump into the bucket and pump water out that seaps throught the ground.

If the power goes out, get video footage of real life bucket bailling please.

Also, since you haven't used the hot tub in three years you really should give it to me.
