Hello..sorry I haven't posted this week..we've had quite a "adventure"..Monday night we were watching TV when the lights and TV went out...Alan got up to check the breakers and when he opened the door to the garage..he was met with very hot black smoke! our garage was on fire....the poor dog, Kingston was sleeping out there so he quickly ran around to the side garage door, cracked it open and Kingston raced out...he was ok..we gathered up the  cats, putting them in my car that was across the street....the neighbors called 911. The firemen were great..and got it out in about 10 minutes...it evidently started in an outlet..an electrical shot...the smoke was the worst..it got up into the attic and into most of the rooms, especially the office and our bedroom....
we are staying in a hotel for a few weeks.....is a nice place but of course, we'd rather be home....the cats have made themselves comfortable...the dog is staying with my son's girlfriends family..he is fine, amazing!
A restoration company has been cleaning out the garage..and will be doing the repair work....our insurance is paying it all...Can highly recommend Allstate insurance..we've had the same agent for 36 years!guess its paying off now, huh?
sorry no photos..my computer is smoke damaged..will probably be getting a new one...I am using Alan's business laptop so won't be posting as often until life gets back to normal...
I am very thankful to the firemen, neighbors and friends who came from no where to help.....I do ask for prayer as our little business will suffer somewhat..hard to stay in business from a hotel room...we lost all our food...and we had alot of canned goods in the garage that were ruined...much of our holiday ornaments and our tree are gone.....some tools, our treadmill,  things that can all be replaced....we are so thankful no one was hurt and our family of animals are safe.....
