leak in the bathroom ceiling

The Bathroom Vent started to leak in the last week of April with the days and days of rain.

Cara posted...
Water is dripping from the fan in the bathroom ceiling. I'm going in to investigate ..... here's to wishing I wasn't the only "responsible" person in the house right now. 
Cara did climb up into the attic attempting to see the extent of the damage if any. Unable to determine how serious it was.

We had the cliche bucket and towels in the bathroom. And that works as well as it does.

And then she posted...
After tears, a call to Jeffry Willis at work, a call to my uncle, investigating the attic (no small feat) and inspecting the roof, inspiration struck at 4 am: Re-route the dripping water directly to the sink or tub using an old shower curtain. Jeffry considers these "MK MacGyver Skills".

And this was an impressive improvisation, I must say. ALL water was effortlessly diverted to the already established, tried and true, plumbing system. Problem solved for now.

Then Cara finds this...

I bet Cara got really worried. I'm just glad she didn't start panicking, although her posts prove that she was really nervous about the issue. Aren't you glad she called you for help, though? Hahaha! I think Jack did a pretty sweet thing, leaving that note out. Anyway, I hope the leak has been fixed by now. Thanks for sharing that! All the best to you guys! :)
