So, This is what is left of our four year investment. Melted plastic and charred insulation. Two weeks ago Shawn was at a customer's house, cleaning their carpet when the machine suddenly came to a stop. He went to investigate and found our cleaning van engulfed in flames. Shawn grabbed a garden hose and quickly put out the fire. Thankfully, there were no other casualties. It could have been catastrophic because the van was parked next to other vehicles and the customer's home! I felt numb when Shawn called and told me the news. The rest of the day we felt like we were walking around in a fog. Don't worry about us though, we have full coverage insurance and so far we have been given the impression that we will settle on a fair number.
I'm grateful that my husband wasn't hurt. I'm grateful that I had been able to secure a good job just one week before this incident. Especially when the economy is in the porta-potty and finding a job, (and a decent one) is so difficult. And, I'm grateful that I did most of my Christmas shopping through out the summer!
