Try to remember how much you love, love, love your house in lots of other ways.

Thanks. :\
The funny thing is, it's me that's always reminding drmellow to think like that. It's nice to be reminded myself, for once!

The Leakfrog isn't alerting you?

The Leakfrogs are awesome. We took them down to the basement and tested them out the night before the flood. I'm such a good energy conductor that I can set them off by holding them in my hand.

At that point, there was a teensy-tiny trickle along the wall. We knew it was leaking, so we didn't bother to set the frogs on the already damp floor. We went to bed.

Then it rained like a monsoon. In the morning, the water was ankle-deep throughout the basement and there was a waterfall down the wall. Bah.

Since there's no way to stop the waterfall, I'm thinking I'll sit the frogs in the low spot a little bit out from the wall, and if we hear them go off, I'll get up and just plan to spend the night downstairs with the wet-vac. :P

(Actually, I'm looking forward to having someone come fix the problem this spring.)
