So apparently there was a fire yesterday in the house I live in. I rent a mother-in-law apartment on the garden/lowest floor of three, and got a series of calls to my cell phone (which has no reception at work) throughout the day asking me to call the landlady.
She stays it started upstairs in their space behind the fireplace. Two of the five dogs didn’t make it due to smoke inhalation, but the guy got everyone else out. There is extensive water and smoke damage to the entire structure, and I’m assuming this includes my unit given the fire started in a location that’s pretty much right above my living room.
I couldn’t go home last night, so got a hotel. Not sure at the moment if all I own is what was on my person and with me at the time, or if everything survived relatively intact and can be treated for just smoke damage. I have no info to go on – landlady is at the house now and talking to her adjustor, I guess.
In fiber content, since this is nominally a fiber blog – I had one knitting WIP with me and pretty much the rest of my massive, humongous, SABLEish stash is at the house. Sundara, Posh, Mama Blue, about forty different fleeces, yarn up the wazoo, my wheels, the RH loom…everything. I …am just so non-plussed and the lack of info is driving me nuts.
Anyway, if you’re reading this, I could use some good vibes. I don’t know if I can stay in my home tonight. I don’t know if all my things are ruined. I don’t really know much of anything right now and …yeah.
Happy holidays! I certainly hope yours will be better than mine. :D
