You Will Never Believe How My Weekend Ended

So it's a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Very lovely. The Analyst and I attend a great church service. A really good friend and his new girlfriend come over to visit and they end up staying for dinner. All in all a very lovely day.

After my friends leave I decide I need to go visit my mother for a few so I jump in the car and head over to her place. It's now about 6:10. I arrive and and we have a short but lovely visit. The Analyst requested an Italian Ice from Rita's so on my way home I stop off and grab one for him.

It's now 7:30 pm and I turn down the street that leads to my development and I notice a couple of fire trucks on the street. I'm thinking,'Hmmmm... Something must be going on here. I wonder what.' I then turn onto the circle that leads to my court and notice a few more fire trucks on the court right behind my house. 'Hmmmm...that's awfully close to my house. I wonder if the people behind me are OK?'

I continue around the circle and turn onto my street and see a few more fire trucks RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE. I remember thinking, 'Wow. The side of my house is all burned. Maybe it's just the side of my house and the rest of it is fine.' Then I look up into my third bedroom and I see a fireman all in the window. 'This can't be good.'

I then start to see the severity of the situation when I see several firemen coming out of my house. I park the car, get out and walk toward the destruction stunned.

DAMN!!!!

Lovely isn't it?

It was an electrical fire that started from the meters on the side of my house. Lucky me.

Boy, can I ever relate to the emotions going through you right now! Back in 1991, my lovely son managed to catch his bedroom on fire. It gutted his room and did a lot of damage to the other two bedrooms as well. My two younger kids -both in high school at the time and I was just completing my first year in college - and I spent a little over three months living in a motel while the house was being repaired. Thankfully, I did have insurance that covered the motel, the repairs, etc., but not the nerve pills I needed to deal with sharing one motel room with two teenagers for that long a period of time!
The most important thing about your fire -mine too -no one was hurt! All the rest -just material stuff. I decided it was a really great way though to get the attic cleaned out if nothing else. Still and all, it is a scary thing regardless of how much damage is done, how much insurance will cover -the whole nine yards.

NO NO NO! Diva - oh my god. Wow. Thankfully you were not there during the fire and I would definitely put those insurance adjusters on notice to move their behinds.

If you need anything - let us know *hugz*

Cat said...

laughingattheslut said...

Whenever you get ready to go anywhere you go around the house and turn off lights and make sure that the stove is turned off and the heater is off and the iron is off, and then maybe you go through the process again to be on the safe side, and then sometimes after you've left you wonder if you remembered to check and make sure that you turned off the stove, etc....

And then after you've done all that the electric meter causes a fire? The electric meter????

Craze said...

OMG that is terrible! I'm glad no one was hurt, but how scary!
