With the record rain storm in the Bay Area last night, our bank of skylights started leaking a steady stream (long history of about the previous homeowner installing a custom fabricated 20-foot assembly of skylights/window - quite beautiful and quite leak-prone). Around 2 AM, we devised a solution to get us through the night: Silly Putty!
Pressed into place, it plugged the leaks until morning. Has anyone else had success with Silly Putty? Do you think we can use it for a long-term solution?
I was under the impression that Silly Putty has long since been banned in California (and there's a strong black market for it).

If I recall correctly, wasn't Silly Putty one our earliest introductions to the concept of image transfer? Of course, my memory might be clouded by my early and often exposure as an young intern tasked to running a blueprint machine.
