Leaks and Leaks

Yes. Our kitchen was leaking. For the last two days, there have been variant leaks around the back of the house, three pots and pans by the back door and then this fine assortment of rain catchers. When we go to sleep, the house is percussive, each receptacle resounding differently: the plastic mop bucket thunks, the ceramic bowl plinks, the giant soup pot plops, a “thit” sound in the small metal camping mug set precisely to catch one specific dripping point, etc. et al. It’s amazing to think that most of the time one takes for granted the integrity of roofs.
