Acacia flowers while they were blooming. They're all gone now, with the wind and the rain.
We have since hired that roofer. We signed the estimate and sent him a deposit and now we're waiting for him to schedule the work. It will be nice not to have to dread every rainstorm that comes our way. Especially this year, as they seem to come in succession.
When the Vélux roof windows got fixed last year, we felt a huge load of stress evaporate. Every time it rained, the drywall around the windows would soak up water like a sponge. Goodness only knows what was going on inside the wall with the insulation. But that's all repaired now and we haven't seen any dampness there since last year. I'll be glad when I can say the same about the kitchen ceiling.
