Ah man. That is mucked up. Sorry for you Bro. It is for sure bad now but time will make it better. And I know it does not seem like it it could be worse. Hope things get turned around for you and you start feeling better. Good Luck.

I'm not going to hang myself or anything.
I live in a small town. People have scanners....volunteer fire dept....I had 48 beers before the fire dept left the first time...yes... I said the first time.
Boat was outside barn. Bad week.... I'm a survivor.
I am not crying in spilled milk. There were neighbors asking what they can do before fire dept.....nothing....just wait...nothing to do.

Sorry to hear that for ya Wags. Hate it for ya. Hope you can save some stuff.

That does it, I'm looking into a fire suppression system for my shop. I've installed a fire sprinkler system in commercial buildings, might as well put one in for myself. One of my greatest fears- coming home to a burned down garage. And with the oils, fuels, solvents, heaters, vehicles, batteries & chargers, ect that we store. Theres a good chance that something like this could happen one day. And I know that my insurance will pay for a lot of stuff but uninsured drag boats & drag cars, motorcycles, things like that wont be covered.

Wags! Man, what can be said...sorry?...feel for you?...nothing really to express the feelings...
If anything, anything you need, let me know. If it's in my power, I'm there man...sincerely...

As far as God, this isn't of God, THIS JUST SUCKS. ;)

Not necessairily a "sign" from god but everything that happens is God's will. Whether we understand why or not.

Terrible thing to happen to anyone. I know it's overwhelming. Try and find a "Blessing In disguise" in there somewhere.
