Blog update

Haven't posted much in a while, had a bit of a disaster over the holidays. Had an electrical fire at my house that started in the ceiling at a junction box that was situated above the breaker box in the Kitchen. Luckily even though it happened really late at night I happened to be awake at that moment when the breaker flipped and smelled burning wires.

So the damage wasn't as bad as it could have been. 911 was called and the fire department removed the power meter to the house and tried not to do too much water damage by lightly spraying the area in the ceiling. Unfortunately the ceiling in my living room has to be torn down and replaced since due to the water it started sagging a bit. And the house will need rewiring.

So for last couple weeks so far I have been living out of a motel using motel wifi for net access. The Red Cross nicely put me in a motel for 3 nights free, but the landlord said that repairs could take up to a month and might go over just a tad. So now paying out of pocket per week on a motel which is expensive but it's about all I can do at the moment.

Anyhow just wanted to post an update since it had been a while. Hopefully things can soon get back to normal.
