That wretched, stinking basement!

Mary Conley(Continuing our story of the farm.)

I didn’t want to see the basement, we didn’t want to empty and clean the basement, and I don’t want to write about the basement. There were (and still are) more exciting things waiting, but what has to be done, has to be done, so here goes.

Looking down basement stairs.

This is the view as we entered, and it stunk.

The first thing we noticed was some rather nice stuffed furniture, ruined now, because of the mildew and stench. Next, there was an old hot water heater lying on the floor. Really? Do people actually install something new and then just leave the old lying on the floor forever?
