The Unwelcomed House Guest

'Murphy' and His 2 Brothers Moved in for 5 days!!!!


Blessed be everyone.

Ok, so I know that everyone is wondering why I have not been here in the last 5 days (since Wednesday). Well...."Murphy" and his 2 brothers decided to move in with us around 5:35 pm Wednesday evening and they did not leave until 8:30 pm tonight.

So, here is what happened........

A while back, we had a heavy storm here in Frayser, and it took some shingles off our roof near our 'meter' box. This caused a major 'roof leak' that we were unaware of for about a month or two.

Water had begun to get down into our wall between the meter box and our breaker box. This in turn caused a 2nd problem with our lights flickering and dimming in and out.

Our light/water/gas company came out this past Wednesday (while I was on the computer on Blogger) and checked everything out, and the man told me that he was going to have to 'cut our power off until we could get the problems fixed' because in his very words,....'if I don't cut your power off NOW, you stand a 98% chance of your house catching fire......'

So, at exactly 5:35pm this past Wednesday, we had no electricity until 1 hour ago.

However, 'Murphy and both of his brothers have now been "evicted" from the house. The entire last five days without my wonderful Blogger friends have been PURE HELL!!!!! LOL!!! I missed you all. I missed 2 days of work, we had to take showers at the gym, and wash our clothes at the coin-op laundry, and even though we had 2 large ice chests we still lost a little over 1/2 of our food.

BUT, at least we still have our home, and our lives, which is truly most important.

I will update the blog in a couple of days because it is going to take me a while to get back organized. I just wanted to come by and inform you all as to what had happened.

Hello there! Oh my goodness. That must've been a nightmare.. A frightful thought.
I'm glad you got it all taken care of and that your house didn't burn to the ground.
Hope your well!!!!

Hello. Yeah, it was pretty bad,but luckily, there was no sevier damage to our meter or breaker box except for the melted rubber casing around the wires and lots and lots of rust. Apparently, the breaker box had been smoldering for a while, because the insulation and wood around it were scorched and black.

We are truly lucky and blessed that all we lost was some food.

Oh, by the way, I received my tea bag in the mail yesterday! YAY!! Thank you again. I am going to save it until Samhain night and drink it then, after I finish giving out candy and toys to the trick-or-treaters.

Have a great week.
