2010/251: Bonus – Hermine

Yes, this storm we are in the middle of right now has a name, and is leaving north Texas (and other areas as well) a complete mess! All I can say is Tropical Storm Hermine needs to move on asap! We’ve gotten 5 inches of rain so far (since yesterday morning) and it’s not over yet!
We had some rain late last week and our roof sprung a leak… there was water running down from the ceiling in Melissa’s room! Greg called the roofer, who was able to come out the next morning and take a look. He told us that we would need different types of shingles for the flat roof above Melissa’s room, and he was going to e-mail us a quote.
It was sunny after that, but sometime yesterday morning it started raining again, and by about 4:30pm, we had water dripping from the ceiling again. Greg called the roofer back, who was able to come out during a break in the rain and patch up the roof. It didn’t stop the leak, but it slowed it down. Still, I’ve been waiting ever since for the ceiling to come crashing down. So far, so good (knock on wood!).
So now we need a good three DRY days, and then another day and a half for the roofer to do the work. Anyone want to trade some sunshine for a steady downpour? I’ll be happy to trade!
