    I'm in an apartment, my ex is living there. She got out along with the dogs. The cats are missing. Entire house is gone, fire department had to bring in machinery to collapse it to finish putting the fire out.

    All my childhood/university belongings were in storage there, so are now gone.

    Second fire in about 5 years (previous one was an electrical fire confined to the geothermal unit due to flooding) so doubt insurance will be in a hurry to pay out.

    Not sure how this will affect the divorce proceedings.

    Red Cross sent someone to deal with my ex as she has major disabilities and all her equipment was in the house. Her mom is with her. I'm stuck alone, no one around.

    2020 eh?

    Sorry to hear about your loss especially about the poor cats and the irreplaceable belongings. I wish you luck with the insurance company.

    Houston, we have a problem...
    Hang in there! I don't know what to say otherwise...

    (2020 is almost over - that is assuming no one presses "replay".)

    DUDE, that's awful!! I'm so sorry. I hope you can find some assistance for yourself--both Red Cross and Salvation Army have assistance programs. If the Red Cross is helping your ex, ask them about what help you might be able to get. I think Salvation Army has financial grants you can apply for.

    I know nothing can replace the loss of your cats, though. That's just terrible. I'm very sorry for all the losses you have suffered.

    And here I was grousing about my papers in the back of the car getting wet.

    I wish I were rich and could give money away to all the creative folks here. The universe preys upon the sensitives.

    Here’s hoping our guardian angels get an intervention and sober up.
