We had a nice rain around noon yesterday. Here’s what it looked like from my bedroom window:
We’re always happy to see it, but life is seldom perfect. A few minutes later I was on the phone in my study when I heard a strange noise, looked around and saw water pouring down from the overhead light fixture. I ran to get some containers and took this video when the water had stopped pouring and was only dripping.
To be on the safe side I taped over the light switch to remind me not to turn it on and then phoned maintenance. They came right over to look and said once it stopped dripping it would be completely safe to use the light. They would work on the roof next week, after the rains stopped.
They said to keep the containers handy in case it rained again. No problem there, I’m just glad I don’t have to deal with it. 🙂
