She was already an ex at the time.
Would you move next door to be and be my neighbor? I will bake you cookies!
YAY! about 12 years ago, I had a fire in a gas drier. I got everyone out of the house (catz in pillowcases, small child crying hysterically), and used 4 extinguishers on it. The then-current ex-wife had called 911 the instant I yelled "fire, fire, fire, this is not a drill", and the fire guys were there about the time that I used up the last extingusher.
Ex had shut off the gas to the house with the tool chained to the meter (per the fire drills), and the fire guys just picked up the dryer and walked it right out. Electrical and gas connections be darned. There was some cutting, but no disconnecting with tools.
But that's what needed to happen.
And then we had a lesson on not dropping dryer lint behind the dryer.
“Just an interesting situation last night where I happened to have all the right gear to keep a bad situation from getting worse, and then to deal with the aftermath.”
OUTSTANDING. Thanks for sharing the story. A lesson to us all. Sit back, THINK, and try to figure out what may happen next. And then be prepared for it. It’s really not that expensive (unless you insist on having air conditioning through a power failure, for example) and a lot of people may be VERY HAPPY that you took that time to prepare.
“When I was in the service, I always said when got out I would never stand in another line. My main reason for prepping is to not have to stand in a soup line”
Pretty much what I’ve been saying FOR YEARS (now) on this site. The reason to prep might not be to just kill off the zombies, but rather to be comfortable while others are starving and scrounging.
A friend of mine lost her house to a dryer fire.
I’ve learned to love line drying and it’s way cheaper too.
LOL.. Sounds like it was less than an amicable parting.
Why I prepare?
Smooches. Nice work. Thanks for the reminders.
I seem to recall you asking where your pants were on a previous occasion.

Glad you and your daughter are okay.
i mean neighbor.
