I woke up around 7 to the loud clashes of thunder and rhythmic sound of rain drops tapping on my window. It was odd for me to be up at this hour; I had gone to bed rather late the night before and my lectures are not until two whole hours. Something didn’t feel right. The rain kept tapping like a drum and after a brief moment, I figured that the rain must have been leaking through the window.
I got up to look for any damp traces but everything was dry as it was, so my next suspicion was the AC unit. My AC has a record for leaking during humid weather, and for that reason, I’ve deliberately changed where my computer desk used to reside to a more arid location. But just as I was about to investigate further, I noticed that the ceiling, the region directly above my, “supposedly-safe” desk was leaking! To my horror, the foul-scented water had soaked my router and was still trickling down to the side of my already-operating iMac!
I was living a nightmare; what I was looking at was on the verge of short-cuircuiting and I have absolutely no kind of backup.
Luckily nothing was damaged but even now, 7 hours later from this incident, the leak hasn’t seized to stop.
