So it seems we had serious rain storms here in Florida while we were away. When we got home we found that we put a garbage can in our kitchen in very convenient location. The ceiling had leaked and the bucket had 6-8 inches of water in it with only a few spots that were wet nearby. By yesterday morning the ceiling sheet rock had started to bow a bit. By yesterday afternoon, it was a good thing I had all the cupboard doors open because the ceiling fell down onto the open doors. I was in another part of the kitchen when I heard the crackle and thump, turned around and was shocked to see that it had fallen. By the late afternoon the property management company had sent a handyman over to take a look. He sliced off the other half of the panel and you could see the huge collection of water that had soaked the insulation and puddled in the plastic underneath. Not to mention that all the sheet rock was moldy and bug infested. The house has a flat roof and it seems that the owner had not kept the drains cleared. The roofing guy that was here today confirmed that the drain pipes were filled solid with tree waste and gook. One pipe had even been buried under landscaping. This of course caused "ponding".
So this kind of puts a crimp in our unpacking. I had almost finished unpacking the kitchen. Fortunately I was able to move all the stuff on the counters out before the ceiling panel came all the way down. The place is still a mess though. They estimate that will be a week to 10 days before the whole job is finished. Thank god we are only renting!
