So winter in Chicagoland is well upon us, and the snow at the top of the house is melting and we have a leak. The house entry point (well, the one we can see) is at the top of the jamb, between the screen/storm door and the entry door. It leaked enough that storm door was frozen shut.
As I see it, I have a roof leak. But it's winter and slippery, and will be quite some time before I can get someone to address that portion of it.
My question here is: How do I deal with the leak now?
The dripping water is affecting the operation of the door, and the water leaks out under the storm door and then coats my landing with ice. I need to do something for it, but caulking the leak area seems to me to just divert the water somewhere else within my walls. Is there any decent solution besides a bucket underneath 'til spring?
