    After I finished stopping up exterior cracks to keep rain water coming into the cold storage area in my basement I moved on to do the inside. While working on it I thought 'Hmmm another project - start purging. I started that and ended up doing this as well. .

    @Von Jones The handle came off my coffee pot a couple of days ago. I thought of you when I floral wired it back on. :p I wish I had a basement. We don't have much, if any, of that in Florida. Does it get damp to the point of mildewing things or does that just happen in the swamp land I'm used to?

    @Bess Barber, lol. The basement only gets wet when there is a long and heavy rain or more than one day of rain. I'm quick to use my shop vac when it happens.

    I walked barefoot into the storage room and the carpet I laid was wet that was last year. Of course I only used it to store seasonal items and items t sell when I set up at the flea market and then members of my family left things and never came back for them. Then my mother passed da ta da ta da...

    So after looking at lots of Youtube videos I found this product and I'm praying it stops the rain from coming into the storage room. I patched up a lot of cracks I found inside and out.

    Cut it out, @Von Jones !! Now I feel like a slug. :D (But only because I AM a slug; it's rained all day and I stay plastered in a chair with my book.)
