The sump pump continues to function which is good. Flooding continues. It is currently not raining.
When I moved into my house the far backyard was excessively low with respect to the surrounding yards. I moved in yards of topsoil one wheelbarrow at a time. I raised my yard about a foot above the yard behind me. His yard this afternoon contains a lake while my yard is above water. I planted trees and shrubs at the back fence line that don't mind having their feet wet, in particular Viburnum trilobum American Cranberrybush Viburnum. They thrive and everyone likes the berries.
