Drip Drip Drip

When I went to go sit at my desk, I noticed that the rug had a discolored spot. I figured that I had spilled something some dp earlier and I'd have to use spot remover later.

Then I heard this "drip" sound.

I looked up. There the ceiling had bubbled - about a foot and half across. Crap.

Called the emergency number (this had to happen the week that the on site apartment manager was on vacation). Nothing they could do about it today, but they'll be out to check tomorrow.

I was told that I could possibly pop the bubble with a screw driver and get rid of most of the water. I have my doubts about trying that. 1) I have no idea how much water is up there and whether it would fit in my bucket or totally overflow it and me 2) I'd need to balance a bucket while standing on a step stool AND 3) it's that "how much water is up there?"

So I will just clear as much stuff out of there as as I can.

Hopefully it will not rain anymore tonight. Last night it poured...

It would probably be a good idea to put the biggest available container where it's dripping, just in case it decides to break on its own.

Oh, yuck! Hope nothing you care about gets damaged.

Definitely NOT a good idea to break the bubble! What are they thinking? Moving stuff is is good plan. The bad thing is that the leak is probably huge to produce a bubble that large and it could be almost anywhere, since water flows to the point of least resistance.

Hope it works out and nothing was damaged!
