So, we get news this evening that there had been a fire in one of the units in daughter's apartment building in Berkeley! We have no idea if her apartment unit has suffered any smoke or water damage. She won't know until she returns to Berkeley, tomorrow.
At least she wasn't up
there during the fire to go through the trauma of experiencing having to evacuate due to a fire and she has her laptop with the draft of her
thesis down here, with her. So, even if her clothes, text books,
printer, TV, etc. got damaged, they are only things that can be replaced. Daughter is safe and she has her most important
stuff with her. But hopefully, her unit is OK and there has been no damage, or just minimal damage.
It's always something, isn't it?
We are grateful that:
- She is safe
- She wasn't there to experience the trauma
- She has her important items with her down here
- Whatever got damaged can be replaced
- She has renters' insurance
Happy your daughter wasn't there and hope she didn't sustain any damage in her place.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Jess. She's on her way, up there and we'll find out once she gets there. It's just one more thing she has to deal with which we could have done without. But that's life, isn't it?Delete
I am so glad she wasn't there when it happened- hopefully everything turns out to be okay (praying that all is well for her when she returns) and her belongings are alright. I am thankful she was spared the scare of having to go through that. Please give that girl a hug for me!ReplyDelete
Dawn, yes, we are very grateful that she wasn't there to go through it. She's on her way up there, now, so we should find out in the next hour or so, what damage there has been to her unit. I'll tell her you sent a hug. :)Delete
