I need a cover for my outdoor stairs to basement.
 
I have an outdoor stairway to my basement that constantly fills with leaves from all the trees in my yard. If I forget to clean out the bottom of the stairwell (there's a drain there), it floods into my basement during downpours.

What is the best type of stairway covering to have installed? I've seen plastic bubbles that cover stairways, but don't know what they are called or where to buy them.

Any suggestions?
Thanks for your responses.

what if you put a screen "bubble" over the drain itself, to keep the leaves out of it?

stairwell cover
 
I was thinking of that. Any clue how I could attach that to the house?

Bilco doors, keeps out weather, leaves, and burglars.
