Sun Sports Editor Dave Selvig heard water dripping from another area of The Jamestown Sun this evening and discovered several holes in the ceiling caused by water seeping in through the roof.
We’ve had some warm temperatures lately and, coupled with today’s high wind, that melted a lot of snow. That snow is trapped by still-frozen ice on our roof, so gravity makes it find other ways to the ground.
There was a lot of mopping and reorganizing tonight in several rooms. Here’s a shot of what it looks like now, with buckets and trash bins placed to catch falling water.
It’s just so funny to me. We’ve spent all this time worried about overland flooding, groundwater infiltration into basements and rivers flowing over their banks. We’ve looked at all the ways that floodwaters could come at us from the ground up. Now, the water is coming at us from overhead.
You could call it “ninja rain” or maybeÂ ”wet from above.”
