A Small Waterfall in our House
I got home a little early yesterday from work because of a meeting I had. We had to put a bowl (I don't mean a small bowl, we used the biggest bowl we could find) by our couch in the morning because we had a slight leak in our ceiling...by slight I mean just a drop or 2 every now and then. If you've never seen our house, it's a really retro-looking house that was built in 1950 with an almost completely flat roof and no attic space between the roof and ceiling. We've had a small leak here and there before and we (by "we" I mean Edwin) have to spread this sealant stuff on the roof sometimes. So I walk in and looked in the living room and thought "wow, there's a shadow that's making the bowl look like it's completely full". Upon further inspection I realized the bowl WAS completely full and spilling over....on to our wonderful suede couch!!! We HAD an "L" shaped sectional couch and over 50% of it was completely soaked through with water! Our slight leak had turned into a small waterfall! NOT what I wanted to come home to!
