Water Everywhere!

Not exactly how I planned to spend my day off! Last night AJ says Mom, I need some stickers! So I go downstairs. To my dismay, I smell musky damp smell, I immediately notice water stains on the table cloth and look up. This is what I see:

We try to figure out if the dishwasher or sink is leaking. NO luck. Of course, it is around 8pm at night! The basement is my scrapbooking room. The table with my friends work of are in progress is in shambles. My memorabilia from the last 6 months is ruined. Everything is sopping wet! We start moving everything. Carefully start puncturing holes so the ceiling doesn't collapse on everything I own!

The plumber comes and fixes 3 holes, and then tells me, the contractor needs to take the sheet rock down and open up the entire copper line. He needs to replace all of it because it keeps leaking! YIKES, this is NOT the day I had planned!

At least it isn't a slab leak and at least we found it before there was 3 feet of water in the basement! But, still it is a mess! Heaven help me, if it isn't one thing it is another. Happy New Year!

So sorry--what a mess. We had washer hose leak in November--I hate that smell.

OMG, that is the worst!! Especially when you realize what's been ruined...hopefully it can be replaced. We went through something like this a couple months ago...only we had 6 inches of water on the floor...not a good time! Good luck with the clean-up and repairs.
