Having now slept in my guest room for two nights (I pulled the mattress and box springs off my bed to avoid the possibility of damage from the deluge), I tender my sincere apologies to anyone who’s stayed therein.
The guest room mattress is absolute crap.
One less thing to eventually move, I suppose.
The twin bed in the “starving student garret” is much more comfortable. But that room is (on purpose) close to freezing right now; I’m trying to keep that roof nice and cold to mitigate the weeping.
The roofer comes later today; fingers crossed I can still afford a new guest room mattress after that check (and after I move).
