We have a problem with the auma at the front of the house and I have gone up the stepladder to check the drains.
I do not know the English word for auma, and I have only Irma’s word that the word actually exists. Google Translate doesn’t recognise it, unless I have spelled it wrongly. In our minds it means the L-shaped piece of gutter that connects two straight pieces of gutter on the inside join at the front of our house.
Whatever the word one of the joints has a leak and I have come up the ladder to see if I can identify the cause. Probably I can.
To assist me in explaining this to the man at K-Rautta when I go there this week to ask what I need to fix it, I decide to take a photograph. It turns out a lovely abstract image but nothing you would show an itinerant handyman when explaining your drainage problems…
