If they are draining on top of the ground, might add a 4' or 6' to help get the water further from the house and into the yard.



Just a thought that's helped me in the past keep water from building up in flowerbeds after heavy rains.


Most all downspouts run in plumbing underground. Except that one. That one drains to a catch basin that goes to the sump pump

Basin was $26
Pump was $299
Pipe and fittings was another $50

I traded the labor for electrical work

Ok I've got everything on my list done except for getting a second pump. I plan on renting one Friday but that might not be possible. Fingers crossed

Funny, I was wanting to pickup a 50# bag of sand for some strength training I am doing... but realized that the stores are going to be way to crazy right now with the forecast becoming more and more unfavorable.

I filled up both our vehicles Tuesday and our two 5 gal fuel cans as well so I wouldn't have to deal with any fighting to get to a pump.

We're a bit closer to the coast and it ain't looking good. I'll be checking out the generators tonight and filling gas cans. We have the toy hauler with generator to live in a while, if need be and generators to run the refrigerators and freezers. Boat's in the barn if water gets too deep to drive my 4WD in. It would take a monumental flood of biblical proportions to need a boat. Would be kinda funny though to drive a 22 foot bay boat to town. And I'd do it in a heartbeat, just to say I did.

Stay safe folks!

Ok guys here we go. The rain has started and I have everything set up. I extended one of my down spouts and I have the sump pump in the ditch setup. The sump pump in my yard is pumping to my ditch. The pump in my ditch is pumping across my driveway way eventually making it's way to the drain to the detention pond. The pond has 2 big pumps on it. Unless we lose power we should be pretty good. I rented a 2" gas powered trash pump with 150' of discharge line in case I need it. Running to spend some time with my wife and kids before it gets too bad.

Do you have any wire mesh you can put around your pump and bucket to keep the debris from clogging it up or clogging it up as often. I will say that it appears that you have prepared as good as you can.
I hope you make it through with no damage. Be safe.

God Bless and be safe! I lived in Beeville for a couple of years, visited Rock Port, Aransas and of course battled the traffic in CC for shopping all the time. Loved the area and my prayers are with all in the path of this storm. Lot's of rain in North Texas...Granbury and fighting the dam mosquitoes, but nothing of course what you folks are facing....prayers are with you all!!!

As it sits now....we have remained on the outer edge of the bands. Wind has picked up and we are getting light rain here and there. I haven't checked the rain gauge but feel confident saying we have got under an inch of rain

Yes they are so far. Thanks. Sump at the house is keeping up. And the pump at the ditch is giving me hell. But it's manageable. I'm pretty much having to be going full time while the rain is here to keep stuff going. But it's working.

We got 3.5" in 2hrs.

It's been 30min since it stopped and everything is drained off now.

I'm having to use the trash pump to pump out the back ditch
