This is not Kate. This is Laura. (You may know me from comments as Miss Laura. Or you may know me in person, and…well, I don’t know what to say about that 🙂 Kate called me veeeery early this morning to ask if I’d consider writing a guest blog. Y’see, non-GR-types, we had a series of pretty wicked storms yesterday afternoon into the evening, and Kate’s without power. And because she’s living the simple life in the back 40, they’re not expecting to have power restored for about four days.
She also told me that the home of her neighbor two doors down (about a half mile away, I figure)…uhhh…exploded. Apparently lightning hit the electrical line that runs to their house from the street and that was that, there’s nothing left. No house, no cars. Kate and Curt were able to find out just this morning that they’ve confirmed that no one was home when this happened. Can we all let out a sigh and a collective “Thank you, Jesus”?
Until this, the Mulders were planning to leave for a weekend camping trip today, and they’re not yet sure what they’re going to do…though it doesn’t seem there’s much reason to stick around.
Anyway, Katie Dear asked me to let everyone know that they’re all okay and she plans to be back in full force on Monday. And she especially didn’t want her dad to worry. So Mr. Sebeck, your kid is just fine.
And if you’re at all curious, you can see the damage my family’s dealing with at my blog here. You’ll have to check it out later today, as photos are required and my camera needs a-chargin’.
Good chattin’ with you, peeps!
