Exclamation Oldfishlady

Hey everyone,
I only have a minute.....but just wanted to let everyone know that I am still alive...but not by much.....

Thursday night-our house was struck by lighting and our propane tank that I just had filled up last week exploded during the electrical storm.......

It took the fire dept 13 hours to get the fire out due to them not be able to get the big truck down to my house and they had to use the smaller brush trucks and go back and forth to re-fill and they emptied my swimming pool for water as well.....

We are all fine, the house did not burn down....Thank you Lord.....

But we just got electric and phone back up today (Monday) and waiting on a new propane tank and Insurance and all that wonderful stuff you have to deal with when a disaster happens.....

And we have another storm due in fun......

Anyway, I hope all of you are well and I will try to get back on line later today or tomorrow.....

Oh, wow...i'm glad you are okay!
I'd be pretty freaked if that happened to me, that's the only thing I worry about during storms, or a tree falling on the house.

What a thing to have happen,
I know somewhat what it feels likes.
Propane tanks are real bad, I had two blow up when my house caught fire 20 yrs ago,
Just had them both filled the day before too,
They said It could be seen way in town, reaching to the heavens, If it hadn't been for those two tanks they might have been able to save my house. We had no insurance and had to start from scratch again,
you can bet after that we have insurance!

Whats important is you survived! everything else can be replaced you can't!

All the best,

Thank The Lord you're all OK! I'm so sorry about your house! =[ I'm glad it didn't burn down!

Hopefully the fire department will learn a lesson from this and work out a better route and plan for putting out fires that are farther from town. =[

I wish you luck with getting everything back in order and I hope it's not too stressful. =[
