We recently bought our 26 yr old house in May 02. During the storm in Nov(we live in CA) we noticed that watter was dripping thru the recessed lighting in the celing so we went up in the attic and saw that the area was inaccessible because a the heating duct ran right over the light. We thought probably it was a condensation problem and since were going out for the weekend we put the heater off and when we came back we did not notice any more water (we had a left a bucket in the spot)than we had seen when we left. We thought that was leak was really a condensation problem.
With the storm last week we got up at 6am in the morning with another area (very close to the the recessed light) which was now leaking. We again went up on the attic and this time we could see the water. But it is very diffuclt to see where it is coming from. There is a cricket area right above the area where its leaking (which was fixed by the previous owners in April 02) The repairman said that the problem is probably in the cricket area but he could not say it for sure. We really do not know what to do as we are first time home buyers
Can anyone suggest any advice?

Apparently, the previous owner did not fix it and the repairman doesn't know enouugh about roofs. Call a roofing compny.
