I noticed a small puddle of water near my kitchen table today. I have kids, so nothing new; I just wiped it up. A few minutes later as I walked over the same spot I felt something wet drop on my head. “Fuck”, I thought, not wanting to look up at the ceiling; but I did. A water stain was forming around the light fixture and water was slowly leaking down from there and dripping on the floor. Fuck.
I got the flashlight and climbed into the attic, and yup, parts of the roof were wet. I felt under the insulation and found spots where a lot of water had gathered on top of the plastic that covered the ceiling. I soaked up what I could with a towel, put a big ass bucket underneath the wettest spot, then scanned around other sections of the roof. I discovered some water was trickling down my furnace’s chumney as well. Fuck.
I’m already in debt up to my eyeballs. I can’t afford this shit. Stupid houses.
