Water in middle of basement floor
We found water in the middle of our basement floor this morning. The evidence is that it is coming up through the cement. The amount is relatively small (a thin puddle a foot or so in diameter). There are no pipes in the area, no signs of leakage from other areas, and no cracks in the concrete. To my knowledge this has never happened before in the 16 years I have owned the house - even in the monsoon year, 1993.
It has been extremely cold here and for a long time. I've been told it is the worst cold snap in 60 years.
I've heard that there are springs in the area could water from one of them be coming up? - farfetched but the most plausible theory I can come up. Other ideas?
