Everything Has Collapsed

Tonight my house collapsed. I am homeless again.

I arrived home about 4:00pm EST from helping a friend (Jeanette) who had been staying with me until she could get back on her feet from a much needed doctor’s appointment. When I went to unlock the door to my house I noticed that the screen door was scraping against the steps as though the house had sunk down an inch or so.

As the evening progressed we kept hearing creaking noises with an occasional thud. The house would shake like an earthquake. The noises started getting louder and closer together in time. I went outside with a flashlight and noticed that the house seemed to be leaning a little on one side. It was also leaning directly on the Gas main pipe. We knew something was not right and immediately called 911.

They instructed us to leave the house immediately and that the fire department was on it’s way. As we were heading out the door things started to go bad fast. Windows were popping, doors were cracking, etc. We made it outside and the fire department was showing up as thankfully they are located just down the road.

The fire department  illuminated the house and seconds later the whole thing just caved in. It was like something out of a movie.

The house is condemned and and I am now homeless. Thankfully the Red Cross was able to get us a motel room for the night.

But now I don’t know what I am going to do. If anyone would like to help out I’ve set up a donation page.

Please do anything you can. If you can’t donate, you could help by sharing this page and or write a blog article about it. I would greatly appreciate it.

Facebook Page set up for support. (with photos of the disaster)

Please Help! – More Plumbing Problems!

I have the worst luck in the world. For the 3rd time this winter I’m caught up in a major plumbing problem here at my place. First the pipes froze and burst on me, then the drain froze a couple weeks later requiring and entire 50 foot section to be replaced. Now the pipes burst again but this time in a horrible inaccessible location. Requiring the toilet to be removed, the entire floor to be cut out, and rebuilt from scratch just to to access the leak.

I am begging and pleading for donations from any readers here. This couldn’t have come at the worst time. I seriously can not afford this. I need to buy materials to repair this, just to I can go to the bathroom. If you can spare anything I would greatly appreciate it.
