It got interesting alright.

.

Remember last week when I posted about the giant tarp and a high wind storm coming our way?

.

.

Well, it came.

.

.

And the tarp went.

Sailing off the roof, across the lawn and down into the woods where it rolled into a large ball and sailed right back up to the house.

How well did those grommets hold?

.

.

Not very well as it turns out.

.

.

Sadly along with the wind came rain. And with the tarp protecting nothing but snow covered ground, our ceiling leaked again.

.

.

And the water broke through my previous patch job on the beam.

.

.

So today I’ve been spackling and sanding trying to fill the hole.

.

.

And bleaching the numerous stains on the ceiling…. which is getting quite ridiculous. Every storm brings a new stain in a slightly different spot.

.

.

I’m seriously thinking of painting the damn thing in polka dots until spring.

And if you’re wondering what Lord Mountcatten was doing through all the excitement?

.

.

Trying to ignore it of course.

  1. Oh boy, hope you can get the roof repaired ASAP. That shit scares me, having inherited a few bad roofs in my time. Nice nails though! How do you keep them looking good while spackling, etc.? I don’t have that talent, sadly…

  2. “Every storm brings a new stain in a slightly different spot.” Some people are never happy–what’s wrong with having a unique ceiling!?!? Plus I don’t hear the Lord complaining and he NOW owns the manor!

  3. How annoying. I wonder if you could put a camera up in the roof cavity? There’s battery powered ones that are pretty good quality – but not sure if a light of some sort would also be required? I’d worry half the roof would get fixed but the problem’s in the other half.

    1. A light would definitely be required. My husband has been up there numerous times and thinks he finds the spot every time…. but clearly he doesn’t. The problem is a tiny hole somewhere and the water is running down a beam.
