Then toilet drained slowly, too, and i noticed something else: water leaking out around its base.
I decided to go to the basement. I don't know what I expected to find. Occassionally in the past there's been a leak in the basement ceiling after Lut takes a shower, but every time I've checked after one of my own, it's been dry.
Today, I found the basement was flooded. It can't still be wet from the launrdy machine flooding, can it ... ?
No, there's more water than there was Thursday.
And it smells like sewage.
The septic tank is being pumped tomorrow.
