We're under our first heavy rainfall warning of the season right now and the marine forecast for Howe Sound includes these words:

a broad frontal band with a tropical tap of moisture is streaming across the north coast and will slump southwards tonight and Monday.


"Tap" is a good word. Outside right now, it's as if someone has turned on a tap and let it run. We found another leak in the roof, over the north dormer in the loft, so that'll need some attention.
