Leak update, er, update

The leak is (hopefully) fixed. My landlord’s business partner showed up with the handyman shortly after 5:30pm. By 7pm, they were done and out the door. The roof has been liberally coated with what amounts to a rubber roof cement material, that dried within an hour and will cure in a couple of days. Basically, if it rains tonight, it’ll hold and keep the water out. On the inside, they put up a protective material to repair the damage to the ceiling under the dropped ceiling. That should keep the drafts out. And they put in a new ceiling panel so it all looks pretty (well, as pretty as a drop ceiling gets). They even helped me clean up the large debris pieces and the dead ceiling panel. [I was waiting on cleaning until the repairs were done in case they dislodged any additional debris.]

So that’s that. Yay! I’ll just make sure to watch carefully the next time it rains for any sign that the leak is back. God willing, it won’t be and all will be well.

I love a quick resolution to a problem. All that’s left is for me to vacuum and wash the floor before moving the dog’s kennel back into position.

I’m learning to laugh at myself on a daily basis. I’m a librarian (cataloger) and I love it. My job involves all things metadata related in any and all formats. I have been known to cause a ruckus when necessary (aka troublesome cataloger) and make no apologies for it. I have a passion for continuing education and teaching. I’m a newbie coder (still learning). I like to cook. I’m a fan of rugby (go Australian Wallabies!) and ice hockey (go Detroit Red Wings!). I’m car-free and bike/walk a lot. I’m learning to love running one stride at a time. I own (and love) a very mouthy cat with a punk attitude and a slightly neurotic rescue mutt.
