We have a leak in our roof! Awesome!

Lots of storms came through last night, and we woke up this morning to a drip...drip...drip. It's in about the best place it could be, near the back door, but when Toby went up into the attic he saw that it's coming in, running down a beam, and dripping off in a place that he can't reach to put a bucket, so we're left with a bucket inside while it's raining until it can get patched.

(For those of you saying "tarp the roof"--we can't without professional help. It's pitched too steeply and the leak is somewhere along the place where two planes of the roof meet, so we'd have to, basically, tarp the entire roof to keep water from getting in there.)

Got a claim in to the insurance company (thanks to their app!) and just waiting on a call from them, but they're having a high volume of calls (no duh!) right now so it may be a while.

Ah, the joys of home ownership.
