The weather had cooled down so nice but the smoke was just awful for many days. So stayed locked up in the house again with the A/C running but at least not as much. It is now hot again but the smoke is not as bad.
Adam's team lost the first game on Sat. by 4 pts. they played a really tough team and one of the guys looked like he was about 6.7 if nothing. But they played well agianst them. Sunday they won by about those 4 pts. I was lucky to be able to watch it on YouTube.
This morning I get a horrible call from my daughter Debbie and she was crying so hard I couldn't make out much but fire. She finally got the words out that her apt. was on fire and she was heading home from work. The dog was in the apt. Someone got her out but she was unconscious it must have been the fire dept. and they worked on her and gave her oxygen. Those guys go above and beyond and they saved her. My grandsons girl friend showed up and rushed her to the vet where they kept her most of the day and she is fine.
But the apt. and everything is a total loss. All she had was her work clothes on her back. Her girlfriends showed up and stayed with her until they let them in to see what could be saved and there was nothing. Red Cross came right away and gave her $250. gift card so she could get some clothes, shoes and personal hygene things. She will stay with her friend tonight and the apt. manager will have a place ready for her tomorrow. Her son Adam flew right home to be with her and get her settled. That kid takes such good care of her.
They said the fire was electrical that started in the kitchen. Her stove is gas so it wasn't that. It could have even been in the wall so it may have been burning for some time. She left the house at 6:30am for work and said she didn't smell anything. It was so sad to see the pictures of the complete damage. It really upset me to not be able to go to her but my breathing issues are not very good right now and to smell even more smoke would have only added to the her problem.
The love and support that is pouring in for her is unbelievable. Her granddaughters mom Pauli, has a storage locker full of furnature that she gave her. Once we see what all is there we can take it from there. Pauli was with her all day and into the evening at Meagans house where Debbie will stay tonight I live really far from that area so she didn't want to stay here because of her job. But they gave her a couple days off to get settled into the apt. Friends have been putting money in her bank account and checks are coming here in the mail for her. And she does have some savings so she will be fine, its just the shock of it all. She said she is just numb right now.
Good Night All
