Fire
« on: February 25, 2007, 11:51:08 AM »
Well, i had a fire in the house last night, we were at my moms boyfriends house and came back at the right time they fire department people said that it had preatty much just started, all my stuff is gone, camera, lap top, stero. All my plants and insects are gone. All my clothes.

Im fine, my dog's are fine, my mom is fine. getting things worked out right now, gonna head out and get some clothes, my mom's boyfriends house is far for me to drive so im gonna be looking for a place to stay closer to my school, with a friend for most of the week, hopefully things will be back to semi normal in about 2 weeks.

I dont know about my bee stuff, I think its fine, but i dont know really it sucks, ill find out later today. My guitars and things are fine too, well maybe my saprano got destroyed (saxaphone).

Ill update more later.

Sorry to hear about that, and about the ants and all.  At least something was salvageable.  A fire like that here would be devastating, too.

Hope it doesn't take too long to pull everything back together again (at least that which can be pulled back together).

Cody:

Sorry for the loss of your creatures, knowing they meant so much and of course the damage to your home. I'm glad you and your Mom are Okay and hope that everything works out quickly and as seamlessly as possible. It's hard to find better words to say "Hope all works out really well."

I'm glad you have a friend near school, that has to help - hopefully you'll be home soon and start fresh on the hobbies that interest you so much. Best wishes our Friend!!

Source of the fire-

My dresser is preaty much stuck up against my wall, (was) and their were some wires pinched close together from my stero. The wires supposedly arched and started the fire.


We are living with my mom's boyfriend half an hour away, and thats a long drive daily, my mom is paying for gas and insurance on my car. 4-6 months till the house is completely liveable again.

gotta get to bed its late guys.

Ill update more. Insurance covers allot of the stuff, and my beekeping stuff is fine, my mom wants to get new wax though who knows what kind of chemicals got put in the wax or on it for that matter.

Cheers

Cody, the losses are awful.  It is a saving grace that no person was injured, thank that part for sure.  All else is replaceable.  I have not had the horror of ever meeting fire, I could not begin to imagine the feelings of loss, and I feel bad for you.   Keep on keeping on.  Best of the best day.  Cindi

Sorry for your loss. Congatulations on being safe and sound in your persons and fur-pets. Things have a way of working out for the best, even though you cant see how at the moment. Most importantly is you and your family's safety.

[...my mom wants to get new wax though who knows what kind of chemicals got put in the wax or on it for that matter.]

That is highly advisable. Fires consume a lot of things you think about, carpets, padding, and plastics.  All those things create a lot of oily residue when burned.  While it may appear OK, it is so finely aerosolized, its very hard if not impossible to detect by sight, sometimes by smell.  I don't think you want to start out wondering if the bees are ok on potentially dangerous foundation. 

The floor below the apartment I was living in about 6 years ago burned when the tenent fell asleep drunk/stoned while burning a candle.  Though it burned out the entire floor, most of my stuff was smoke damaged beyond resonable cleaning. I was thankful though, because of the floor layout, had I been home, I'd been dead from the smoke a long while before the fire department got there. I can appreciate your disaster, but it can be overcome.

Thankfull it didn't happen while you were asleep or fatally involved any family members. 

Take pictures, you look back on it in a few years and realize it sucked, but that you survived and moved on to being something significant. I say document it, because as time goes you'll forget the miserable time you might be having, and it will give you an appreciation for things later.

Do it over, all of it, and do it again like you have a second chance. 
Do it bigger and better and let the forces that are, be shown that you are stronger than ever.

I ended up wrecking my car on the way home from drama practice (now a half hour drive for me). I am fine, I'm not hurt at all, no fractures, just bumps and bruises. Also, I rolled the car like 4-5 times supposedly. I had dozed off at the wheel. I had a long day and didn't get much sleep the night before.

From now on when I'm tired I'm going to call some one, get out of the car, open a window, or have some one pick me up.

I was only a mile from the house. luckily i didn't hit any one else.

we have all done it.  you learned a valuable lesson the hard way, but as you say, no one got hurt.

hang in there.  sometimes it seems like life just sucks the big one.  ride it out.  it makes for good stories later, and things to nag your own children about when you are a parent.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
