Friday we had a nasty rainstorm. It wouldn't have been so bad, except the roofer, who was supposed to finish roofing the house THREE WEEKS AGO, didn't get the tarp over the stripped part of the roof correctly. Out of 22 rooms in the house, 9 were wet, along with the back stairs and part of the living room. M Squared T and the BSF's odd-jobs contractor went up on the wet roof to reattach the tarp and try to cover up the house as best we could. We stemmed the tide, but not completely. The roofer came back later, and he's paying for the damage... including (I hope) my ruined pair of shoes, which reek to high heaven after getting soaked in the rain reattaching the tarp.
Now the rain is coming down steadily outside my window. So far, so good. The gutters are still bad, but they will be fixed (as soon as the durn roof is done). I hope my housemates are still dry...
