gone in a flash...please read

Posted in Trading Post

anyone I have had unfinished trades with will have to be canceled. I have some tragic and unbelievable news.

today, I have lost my home to a forest fire.

I was walking home from school to my house which is located in a heavily wooded area , and I could see the cloud of smoke in the distance, it seemed so far away, nowhere near my house, and it seemed very small. when I arrived home I got ready for work. not even ten minutes later, my house was surrounded in smoke. my family and I scrambled to grab some personal belongings, but ended up with basically nothing. as we drove up the hill in our van, there was fire on both sides of the street. my father stayed behind to grab a few more things. he just made it out. the fire was already in our driveway when he escaped with his truck.

my street has had the worst of it so far, and hopefully for others sake, it stays that way. the smoke was so thick fire crews could not even get down my street, one house even exploded because of propane fuel. so far no one has been injured. my family and I are safe, but we have lost our home and belongings. my coveted figures were my pride and joy, I loved figures and customizing. but that is all gone now.

here is a link to an interview. the man speaking, Brett Ryan, is my father.

once again I apologize for any inconvienence I have caused for those who have had transactions with me that have not fallen through yet.

this has torn my life apart, and will not be easy to get over. But maybe in the future I will build my collection back up again and continue customizing.

Damn. Goes to show you just how wonderfully, painfully chaotic the world truly is. Wish you best you the luck my friend. If you are a religious man then may whatever deity you pray to give you strenght, and if not then just remember that you always have people who will lend a hand and an open heart.
