OT - Devastating Day
Our granddaughter's boyfriend and family live just down the road from us. He called her earlier today and told her his house was on fire. Being April Fool's Day, she didn't believe him. She finally called me and asked if there had been any fire trucks go by our house. Sure had! Ended up being at least 8 that I saw. There was an explosion in the garage of their ranch style home and it's a total loss. The dad is away on a business trip; there are four boys, the oldest is in his first year of college, the next one is a senior and the 2 youngest are in middle school.....all homework and textbooks/computers, gone. Meagan stayed with Zac and his mom while DD took the other 3 boys up to KMart to get them some shoes and clothes as they all ran out of the house when the explosion happened and they literally only have what they had on. They stopped by here looking for flip-flops for the boys to wear so they could get into the mall. I know the oldest boys, Zac and Zane, because of Meagan as they're almost always together. Can't remember what the younger boys names are but they begin with Z. Thankfully, they all are physically ok. Unfortunately, the dog they were sitting did not make it. After sifting through the rubble, they found their goldfish alive. Please send prayers and good thoughts to this family......it's been a very long day.
