No this is not some strange American pre-Thanksgiving
tradition where we place bowls on the floor for cats.
This morning after a horrendous windy rainy
night we discovered our dining room ceiling seeping water
from an improperly installed storm window above on the
second floor. (work done by previous owners...not us!)
Hence the plastic and towels in bowls to catch drips.
Russell did a temporary fix with the roofer so no more leaking.
All is dry now and the roofer/window guy will be here
when the rains stop to help us permanently repair and stay dry!
