Yes. About a 3 minute drive (10-15 minute walk) from the venue we go for our romantic escapades.

Inspected probable new house today.

Apparently there's a drain at the lowest point. And it connects to city drain. So there's a water evacuation strategy. But with the ice and snow, I couldn't see it. But then with this much ice and snow, is the drain effective enough to evacuate almost 3 yards worth of water during spring rains? Or will water accumulate at certain spots on the sides of the foundation and damage?

Stay tuned.

Like a city storm sewer intake? If so you should be OK. I'd look at shoveling the thing out, or knowing where it is so you can clear it if necessary.
