My poor spiders...

Kuchiki Rukia - Not an Artist

Yesterday I was visited by the psychiatric nurse and we talked for a bit, and I showed off my home so she could see for herself what sort of chaos I live in. I wanted to show off the giant spiders in the cellar, so I opened the trap door for the first time in months, and.. no spiders on the inside of the hatch.

Instead, I noticed that my cellar is flooded. Maybe 10 to 15 centimeters of water. I have no idea how long it's been like that. The cellar has always been rather moist, with water seeping in (and out) naturally.. I guess wherever it drains out from is clogged. Too bad I have no freaking clue where that is. I think the level of water has decreased slightly since yesterday, but I'm not sure.

Really, I have no idea what to do about it. Ignore it and hope it goes away?

In knitting news, I finally finished sock pair #5, and took loads of yarn photos that I flooded flickr with - for those few of you who follow my flickr feed: the end of the yarn is near. I only have the pure wool yarns left to photo and stash. After that, it'll only be new purchases, and I don't have any plans of making more of those in the immediate future.

Get in touch with whomever owns the building.

Someone need to put down drainage around the building, but that's probably best left for when the ground thaws up.

The reason for the water is probably spring thaw.

Too bad for the giant spiders - I would have liked to see pics sometime. Most spiders like some humidity - but not like that.

Id get someone to look into the water issue. Standing water can cause molds and such that could make you rather ill ... plus its probably not good for the structure either.

This place is already quite moldy as it is. I've already lived here for over a year, so I guess it's not the extremely toxic kind of mold. There really isn't much that can be done about it. I make sure I put lots of garlic in the food I cook, since garlic can hurry up the rate that mycotoxins are purged from the body. (admittedly not by much, but it's something)
