Tent not so waterproof in hard rain storm

I just ripped a 2-1/2 foot slit in my tent’s roof while using a former shovel handle to push up and out the pools of water accumulating in the latest heavy rain storm.

Duct tape doesn’t adhere well to wet nylon. So I have a fast leak filling up the dogs’ indoor water bowl. And more pools accumulating in the outside tarps, not all of which I can reach from inside (stick or no stick).

I’ll see if I can get the video and pics posted.

  1. Oh jeez, what a lesson to learn…tent material expands and contracts with the large temperature swings everyday and water really contacts the material plus any water weight, oh Deborah, you need a new roof.

  2. I want to have a psychic reading with you and I want to donate $100. Can you contact me via email?
