We had a bunch of rain this past week. Which is unusual for October typically. But it's the end of the El Niño weather year - which is supposed to mean that we get a bunch of rain until the New Year. Then nothing but dry, dry weather until who knows when? I need to build a well...

I've stressed about the wet weather too much. Fortunately, the house was sealed and weather-proofed in September. We had a mishap during a rare wet day then. It turns out that the plumbers had capped the roof drains for testing and that some contractor - the electrician perhaps...had drilled two tiny, little 1/2" holes through the roof about 3 feet from that roof drain....The rain came down, the water backed up to that point and voilà, water inside the shell of the house....That was a big bummer. The plumbers came out to the house to uncap the drains later in the day...The electrician or whoever ran their drill up through the roof sheathing never showed up to fix their holes....Luckily, the damage was minimal. We had no drywall up yet, and the moisture was sucked dry by unusually dry weather.

Seriously, the weather has been bizarre lately! I'm convinced the tropics are moving north.
