My wife was taking a shower upstairs a bit ago and I was in here working on the next CZ-82 post when I heard a strange noise in the kitchen. I went to investigate only to discover it was raining.
I can’t imagine why, but I didn’t think to take any pictures before calling away the casualty and laying to my damage control station…but, as a result of my shortsightedness, I didn’t get a picture of the downpour cascading from the ceiling and the three globe ceiling fixture with said globes full of water.
At any rate, I ran upstairs and told my wife to stop what she was doing…which thrilled her of course.
After dropping some towels and a couple of pans down in the kitchen to sop up most of the water, I went investigating.
Apparently a thirsty mouse was hard at work last night digging for water.
Anyway, a trip to the hardware store and a couple of hours later and watertight integrity has been restored.
Oh…and I now have a tray of rat poison placed at the scene of the crime and several more in strategic locations throughout the attic.
The joys of home ownership never end.
