Oh dear…

Last night it rained.  And RAINED.  And RAINED. So much so that Easterpest (the annual Godbotherers allegedly drug and alcohol music festival that ruins Queens Park every year) got FLOODED and had to evacuate when one of the little creeks broke its banks again. We have problems with noise from Easterpest every year, and I hope this means that the organisers will FINALLY have to admit that Queen’s Park is not a suitable site.

Gaps that let in the rain...

However, our more immediate problem was that our laundry was also letting in water.  Although we now have a complete roof, parts of the old laundry wall were damaged in the process of re-roofing, and we haven’t had the builder here yet to replace them.

So we filled bags with dirty laundry and old towels and stuffed them in the gaps…

And then noticed one of the new gutters wasn’t secured quite well enough against the roof, and had bent away in the heavy rain.  Not Happy!  (Ah well, that’s why you don’t pay the WHOLE bill until everything’s sorted, eh?)

*sigh*
