What's Going On In My Random Life? Storm Damage

We have had an interesting week so far at my house.



On Monday night, a neighbor's tree fell on to the power lines coming into our house and caused a bit of a mess.  We were not at home when all of this excitement took place.  I was with my daughter at one of her jazz concerts and my husband was working.  When my husband got home from work, the fire department was there and there had been a small fire.  Thankfully, the quick actions of a neighbor who spotted the damage and called 911 right away probably saved my house and my dogs. 


We are going to be without power until this mess is fixed.  I have some posts already scheduled to published so those will go on as planned.  If you were planning to join in on this week's Books from the Backlist, that will continue just like always.   

I will not have the ability to visit blogs and comment until our power is back up. 

We are absolutely fine and my dogs are fine and that is the only things that matters.  Insurance will fix the house.  

I feel very lucky.

    1. That is really what is important. I wasn't really too worried about my house. I was worried about my dogs.

    1. The fact that there was a fire, regardless of how small it was, is the part that really put things in perspective. It really hit me that we could have lost everything. I think we had a great outcome all things considered.

    1. I am so thankful that our neighbor caught it. The damage is mostly repaired now and it is the back of the house so it isn't as big of a deal.

  19. I'm really far behind on commenting (in case you haven't noticed, LOL). Glad this wasn't a bigger issue. That's so scary.
