It was last Wednesday night and it has been storming for over 24 hours. I go down stairs and found a huge puddle of water coming from under the sliding glass door. I should note that the door sits about 3 inches above ground level outside. It has to be coming down from above, somewhere. I took a couple pics with plans to send to PM Thursday. As I was typing the email, I wondered if it could have been dog piss (as my big whiny boxer has marked the basement two times at this point). So my wife checked that night and figured out it was in fact water leaking in.

Remember, that was Wednesday night. So Sunday morning I am standing in the kitchen looking into the morning room. The light hit the hard wood floor that ends at the sliding door just right and allowed me to notice that about 7ish boards are cupping severely. Anybody want to bet if the two (leaking and cupped wood) are related?
My PM made an appointment to meet my wife yesterday. First walking in and before my wife could point anything out, he saw the wood. My wife said he is "on it". Something about ordering more wood and getting siding guys to pull some siding and check for seals.
This should all bother me, but it doesn't. I believe it's all part of the process. In fact, I should thank the crappy Ohio weather for pointing out a flaw early enough to make a fix without too much damage.
