Fire in the Tiny Town and Random Funnies: Random Tuesday Thoughts

Tuesday has arrived again – last week was a crazy week, if saw my post yesterday, I mentioned our tiny town had a huge fire in one of its oldest buildings:

That was the view from our deck last Tuesday night. It took a very long time to finally put that raging fire out, since the building was built in 1905 (or earlier, some say it might have been built in the late 1800s, one of the few buildings left that avoided the historical fire in 1910 that wiped out the entire downtown at the time). Thankfully all the residents that called that place home were able to make it out safely. Pictures posted of the fire closer show how intense it was:

It took most of the night to put the fire out, and a majority of the following day. The aftermath was chilling:

Unfortunately the building is a loss, they’re working to coordinate having it demolished as quickly as possible, as it’s a safety hazard for that whole block. The town is rallying to help those displaced by the fire – what a horrible to have this happen. Well, OK, no time of year is not horrible – but just before the holidays makes it even more poignant.

We need some levity – let’s to the funnies, shall we? This totally cracked me up:

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.

  1. A destructive fire is such a sad event, no matter what or when. I will be praying for all those displaced.

    You find the best funnies, thank you!

  2. Hill areas. Oh, booooooooooo. (It was good though). It’s always a sad thing when historic buildings catch on fire. We had a fire in a historic 11 story building in the downtown where I work (the second tallest building in the city) many years ago, but they were able to save the building. It wasn’t apartments at the time but it is now.
