I was in my den yesterday, which has a cathedral ceiling, so I don't pay much attention to the nether regions that loom up there in the dark. However, the sun was shining yesterday, for once, and I noticed a spot on the ceiling near the center beam. Closer inspection revealed its a leak spot.
We were taking advantage of the pretty weather and were in the midst of installing a sliding glass door in our daughter's old bedroom, and did not want to stop to climb up onto the roof. So this morning we have to go up there and try to find what has caused that leak before any further damage can be done from the rains we're expecting tomorrow. I know we had a couple of shingles blown off recently, because I found them when I was mowing. Also, because the ceiling in the den is white, I'll have to get up there at some point and try to make that leak stain disappear.
Ah, the joys of home ownership...never-ending maintenance.
