Was able to salvage my bike, some clothes, about half(thank goodness i hadnt done laundry yet, thats usually thursday nite ritual), soaked and covered
in burnt ceiling and 2x4's. All my handguns. THANK YOU SSK case makers. my crystal wine glasses(they were in the dishwasher which was semi intact)
and my Cutco Knives. thats about it. everything else is destroyed or burned. So all in all not a total loss, and im still here and kickin to bug ATS
the little bit i do, hehe. Sadly, dam near all my keepsakes from family long gone was lost.
For all you Religious Miracles Conspiracy Peeps, heres one for you.
My bible was out on my bedstand right next to my bed, nothing on it, over it, wide out in the open.
Untouched, intact, not wet, singed, nothing. entire roof missing over apartment, rain storms all nite last nite, firefighters pumping 500 gallons a
minute into that room thursday. and NOTHING perfectly fine. 17" lcd sitting right next to it, melted, side of bed stand burned from destroyed bed and
bedding. but the top of that bedstand is dry as a bone and completely unharmed. the other side, my dresser burned and semi destroyed. Crazy
Im utterly blown away at that. but then again, not. Dunno how to explain how i feel about it. Its kinda like i knew it was ok just before i saw it
there. My mom gave me that bible when i was 7 and ive had it next to my bed for 30 yrs now. Im not even that religious these years, maybe i should be.
ps, thanx to Zaphod, Gimmefootball420 and a couple others for hangin with me in chat Thursday nite.... It truly sucked that nite.
On a lighter note, i hollered across the parking lot to my manager, "Does this affect my cleaning deposit in anyway?"
