Not the best day ever.
I'm NOT complaining about the firemen, I know they did what they had to to find the fire, they did a great job (it looks like a ceiling light/vent overheated). Instead of totally soaking the attic, they found out exactly where the fire was and basically drizzed water down over it so there isn't a lot of water damage as far as we know. We'll get a better look tomorrow. There were firemen from four different townships because they kept calling others in when they couldn't locate the fire, it was a bit of a shock to pull up and see so many fire trucks and firemen there, I thought it was going to be a lot worse than it actually was.
I have to tell you a funny story, it's a small town thing. Our neighbor, Jodi, went down to our house when she saw the fire trucks, and talked to the workmen, who weren't able to reach us by phone. Not sure why unless they were using the wrong area code, because none of us ever got a message from them. Anyway, Jodi didn't know our cell phone numbers, so she called the local phone company and asked to talk to another neighbor (Vicky) that works there. Jodi couldn't remember our daughter's new married name, so she asked Vicky if she knew what her last name was so she could try to contact her. Vicky knows my daughter's in-laws, they live right next to the phone company, so she called them and told them about the fire, they called our son-in-law, who called my daughter and I. That sort of cracks me up, even in the midst of all this.....I love small towns.
