I like the snow more
2007-01-23 21:08:17

I really do like the snow more than rain these days. It was so lovely being cold and a bit below freezing. Less people on the roads as most people here just won't drive in it. But then it was getting a bit old and I was wishing for the rain to melt it all away. And Boy, the rain sure did come and in about 3 days melted all the snow away and just kept on raining. And then, it started to rain IN MY HOUSE! Umm ya... so much for the roof they put on this house just over 3 years ago just before we bought it. There's a leak coming through the celing in our living room so when you open the door to come in, you have to step over a bucket! Argh! I phoned the people that reno'd this whole house to get info on the warranty on the roof and they said there isn't any. Too bad for me. I shouldn't even phone to ask as it would be like him asking for me to pay him money because he could sell my house again today for more money. Seriously, that was his rationale. I HATE crooked contractors. If you live locally here in BC, ask me for the name of these guys before you do any reno's. The list of poor workmanship goes on and on and I would be pleased to advise everyone I can come in contact with to NEVER give them any money. Oh, and they are a member of the BBB if you can believe it with only one complaint against them. So, the GOOD contractor we know that did our basement is coming tomorrow to have a look at where the water has found it's way in and help us fix it. What a day.

Here's the bubble of paint that formed on the ceiling. Tod punched a hole into it so the water would stop spreading all over the place. Little did we know how much water was in there! It too ages for the water to stop draining. It was a bit scary!

Please step over the bucket when you enter our house

Seriously! But don't move the bucket! :)
