Grey Water in our Basement, Tree Roots in our Pipes

It has been a long couple of days.  The water started coming in yesterday morning, and kept right on coming through most of today.  It finally stopped at about 3:00 or so.  And the folks from the city got to work in our basement at about 6:00.  I’m way to exhausted to even think.  So long story short?  We had issues with roots and pipes knocking heads.  It’s “fixed” now, but only after damage to our basement – water and sewage can do nasty things to a home even if they’re only a couple inches high.  It also appears that this will likely be an ongoing problem for the next 18 months or so – as that’s how long it takes for things to “settle” after this type of a problem.  Like I said, this whole thing just has me exhausted… physically and emotionally.
