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

Posted May 16, 2018 by Carole in Random Thoughts / 40 Comments

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. Jeez Carole, what a horrible thing to happen. I'm glad everyone and the furry friends are all ok and that your have vigilant neighbours. It doesn't bear thinking about what could have happened so I'm glad things are going to be ok.

  2. Ohh Carole, I am so sorry to hear about this. I am so glad that everyone is okay and I hope that your power comes back on soon. Sending you good thoughts.

  3. Noooo, so sorry to hear (and see) this happened 🙁 Glad you are all ok and that the insurance is going to cover all the costs, though! *hugs*

  4. All around this ended much better even without the power. I'm so glad your home, your dogs, and most of all you and your family are safe. No worries on the comments.

    • 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.

  5. I'm so sorry! What a PIA. I'm glad your furry friends made it out ok. You're right they are the most important things. Good luck with the mess and I hope it's taken care of quickly.

  6. I am so sorry to hear that this happened! Bless the neighbour who saw it and called the emergency services. So glad everything is safe and sound, and I hope everything gets patched up quickly <3
