First Snowfall- sump pumps, basement water, and music that makes you love life!

Well, here we are- October 28th- first official snowfall.  It has been raining non-stop for the past 24 hours and just turned to snow.  Albany is such an old town that the infrastructure, i.e. drainage system, is lacking severely.  When it rains hard- we, without question, wind up with water in our basement.  It's really not a big deal as we have a sump pump and a lot of old towels!  I really don't know what the sump pump does- I guess it pumps the water out should we get a lot of it (here's hoping)  Our basement is pretty much terrifying.  It is old and damp (i.e. stinky)- we need a new dehumidifier.  It's just one of the perks of owning a colonial, aka OLD, home!

Even with the stinky basement and water issue- there is just always something magical about the first snowfall.  It's cozy and quiet.  I just recently found a c.d. that I LOVE- Adele 19.  I'm sure some of you have already found this album- but it is excellent and has been my album of choice during these quiet months at home.  Every now and then you discover music that you love and it just flips your day!  So cheers- to the first snowfall and music that you love!
