OK so if you don't know yet I moved to Texas recently. We found out yesterday that our new house (new to us of course) has leaky windows. And I don't mean a little dampness - we had torrential rains the last two nights and the water was literally streaming through the seams of the windows and puddling on the floor, around and into all of the boxes I have not unpacked, the new carpet..its a mess. DH and I spent the last hour plugging windows with towels and trying to sop it up, while the huge fans from ServPro are just blowing it all over the room...such good times. At one point we just looked up and laughed, there just isn't anything we can do but call the home insurance guy in the morning, right?
Hope you all are safe and dry.

Oh man! What rotten timing! Did you get a home warranty with the purchase of the house? Would that cover this sort of damage? Yikes. What a mess! And windows are expensive to replace. Not to mention drywall and carpet....
I'll share our latest house "disaster." We have a retaining wall in the back, and our deck's support beams are within the area the wall supports. Well, the wall has failed. I think all the rain we have had this season has made it much worse. We have to replace the wall, fence, and patio. Hopefully, the deck won't go when they do all the work. We are looking at upwards of $20 grand to get it all done, not including the deck if it does go. Yuck.
Who said that home ownership was a good investment????
