The basement of our 100 year old house is very unfinished, and in a good storm gets trickles of water coming in from the walls. It has two floor drains which take any water that leaks onto the floor into the town storm drains.

And there is the drain for the washer.

We only go down to the basement to throw laundry in the washer or dryer, and to store tools, storm windows, etc.

I am finally getting to cleaning and organizing the basement.

Are the drains flushing out the various good and bad luck?
