Damp and cranky

Four years ago I moved into my current apartment, a basement one. A few months after I moved, my ceiling started to leak during a rain storm. I called up maintenance to let them know what was going on, and he showed up with a bucket and scraped off the plaster where it was leaking to find out what was going on. After a bit of investigation he determined that the rain was being blown under the balcony of the apartment above me and travelling over the boards where it started leaking in my living room. He said he couldn't fix it while everything's wet, so in a couple days after it dries he'd go out and plug everything up. No problem, things happen.
