I am rarely bored.
A week ago Sunday, I decided to make potato salad for dinner. I put the potatoes and eggs on to boil and went downstairs to change my laundry around. I was only down there for a minute or two when I started hearing a buzzing noise. I stood and listened for a while trying to figure it out. It kept getting louder and louder. I turned my washer off thinking maybe something was wrong with it, but the buzzing continued and grew louder. I figured out it was coming from upstairs, still not knowing what it was, I started up the stairs to investigate. Just as I got to the landing, there was a bright flash and a loud popping sound. This is what I found in my kitchen.
And melting my pot to the burner.
We are going to replace the stove. I have been wanting to convert to gas. It is already piped into the house as the heat and hot water are gas. In fact there is a valve in place for hooking up a range. We think we have found what we want at Judd and Black.
A new set of pots at Costco is $175.00. Replacing what I had. Same brand. I am not sure I will buy exactly the same set, but that is what they cost.
We did not think to mention, and I hope they realize that we cannot stay in the house when the floors are being refinished, so there will also be the cost of lodging and meals.
Who would have ever thought it would be so involved? I certainly did not. Goes to show how much I know.
We are waiting now for the Insurance Company to give us a settlement amount. Hope we do not have to negotiate with them. Hope they just give us enough to take care of everything.
