At least it wasn’t the bike

It’s been one hell of a 24hrs. Our little dog, Snooki, woke us up at 2am yesterday, growling at something she heard outside. I thought I heard rain then I heard some bottles clanking so I got up out of bed to see what it was (I almost never do this) and low and behold the dumpsters in our complex were on fire!  😯

I rush outside, call 911 and get FD rolling. Then I realize my truck was parked behind them! Double 😯  I ran inside, grabbed my keys, hopped in the truck and moved it before the fire got to it but it didn’t escape damage. The heat alone has melted/distorted all sorts of plastic bits and the bumper. I backed it in so most of the damage is isolated to the rear. At least I managed to save it from going totally up in flames and potentially catching other cars on fire, or worse the condos themselves!

Now I get to deal with insurance and hope it’s fixable. It looks all cosmetic but I can’t see underneath what wires could be melted etc…

Not a headache I need a week before my wedding.

I need to find some time to just get out on the bike and clear my head.
