Rain on my parade

It's 2:30 a.m., you're 6 months pregnant, and you discover that your mattress is SOAKING.

First thought: "Oh...did I do that?"
Second though: "Did vindictive ghosts pour water all over my bed?" (Remember, it's 2:30 and you just woke up.)

Nope- the dome light fixture over the bed is FULL of water, and each new drop that comes in pushes another drop over the edge and onto your bed!

Blessings: Father-in-law put a light fixture just where it would need to be to hold a gallon or so of water, so it didn't spread all over the ceiling and gush out at the weakest point. No one was electrocuted from the bathing light bulbs. The light fixture held tight to the ceiling, and didn't crash onto us. Ceiling is bowed about an inch away from ceiling studs, but still held tight.

Now we just need to find where the water is coming in, and get someone out here to fix it! My dad and J spent some time on the roof and in the attic looking for leaks, but everything looks snug as a bug.

Wish us luck!

Ooh, I'm so sorry! Maybe the wind blew something up (like flashing) so that water could get that through. I know someone who that happened to. Good luck!
