A few weeks ago, there was this heavy downpour after dinner. We were all surprised when we heard water coming out of the ceiling. There's a leak in the roof and a big leak maybe because of the rushing water. We had collected more than 3 buckets of water in the living room floor. And since the rain hadn't stopped, we had to call the neighbor to check on the roof.. that night. What do you know, the roof drainage is clogged by bamboo leaves so the water overflows in the gutter to the ceiling. Now we are thinking of trimming the bamboo grove in the vacant lot beside our property. But having it trimmed will cost us big money because it is not easy to cut down long bamboo poles. The twigs of the bamboo are thorny and can injure.
