Drip, drip, drip

That was the first indication we had that something wasn’t right.  Nana noticed some water dripping from the blinds in her room.  We had some pretty powerful winds and rain, so we figured it might have just blown through a gap in the window.  But then I tracked the water back to a really small gap in the caulking around the edge of the top of the window.

Rut-roh.

A week or so ago, we had a really strong storm pass through.  It knocked a lot of trees down, but it didn’t appear to cause any real damage. We had a small branch sitting on the roof, but we really couldn’t get to it without risking life and limb (hah!), so we figured we’d just wait until it blew down.

As I walked to the attic stairs tonight, I joked with Nana that I hoped that limb wasn’t sticking through the roof.

Um, yeah.

This would be said 3″ diameter limb sticking through the roof into the attic. Either that or we have an elephant on the roof.

I’m guessing I’ll be spending my day off on Friday coordinating insurance and repair men.

    oh dear! put a fan or hair dryer on the wet drywall. I have some good roof repairers if you need a suggestion. they fixed my leaky stove pipe on the roof and they repaired Cindy’s ice jam on her roof. Geoff the painter fixed the drywall. maybe yours isn’t that bad..

    Grandma M., who reads things later at night than I do (I see things in the early mornings)i.e. now, 7:00 am, beat me to the punch. She is our PM here and does a pretty good job of it. Interesting that we were looking at some of the “fallen” limbs last week, but no knowledge, obviously that one of those elephants attacked your roof. Now you have to spend some of your day off being the PM. (At least J&A are at school so they won’t be “under foot” while you work. But on the other hand, put A on the phone with the repair and insurance guys. She’s a sweet talker and might be able to get a good deal. If you need any help with the “insurance” side of the project, let me know….but I forget that you are a “professional” PM. Don’t fall off the roof.
