Oregon Weather Forecast, Radar & News - OregonLive.com: "Down came the rain. Drip went the leak. Over came the roofer.
Portland's Yellow Pages contain no entries for 'rain,' but eight pages of roofers. One of them stood in my bedroom Wednesday morning.
Together, we regarded the leak, which started after one of those monsoonal downpours last week. We craned our necks at the ceiling. We peered into the bucket by my wife's side of the bed. We looked up, we looked down. The cats slept on the bed.
'Wow,' I said. 'A new roof?'
We can run, but we can't stay dry."
