I'm sorry I haven't got any exciting pictures or anything. But let me tell you, taking pictures is kind of the last thing on your mind when you go to the basement and discover water up to your ankles and a pipe spewing water like Old Faithful. We're still in clean-up mode. The plumber is coming out Friday to figure out and hopefully fix the problem, but we still need to get the carpets cleaned and replace the padding. We will probably have to replace the baseboards, which we most likely would have done eventually anyway since it's just another thing the sellers did wrong in the first place.
Let me say a big THANK YOU right now to Sherry and Alina, who happened to be on their way over to see the house just as we discovered the mess, and helped us frantically move all our clothes and furniture out of the bedroom in time to save most of it from serious damage. I love you guys!
