what happened?

I came into the living room and saw this:

I looked up.

I finally figured  out that it was a piece of drywall mud, not a piece of drywall, but I still don't understand why it fell off. I do suspect the unusually dry heat this summer had something to do with it.
And no, I'm not climbing up more than ten feet to try to mend it.


  1. Looks like something shifted somewhere. Hope that nothing else falls!

  2. I think that with weeks of highs in the nineties things expanded more than they ever had in the past two and a half years (and more, since the drywall was finished long before we had a certificate of occupancy.) This is a really well-built house--I hope it doesn't get tested much more!

  3. Goodness, I hope that is the last of that.

  4. Sorry it happened, but at least it makes for some dramatic photojournalism! Hope there'll be no more though.

  5. Ooops. I sure hope that's the worst of it.
