This is the outside.
The room where he kept all his documents and such was untouched. Literally. No smoke, no water damage. It was unreal. The 2 bedrooms farther down the hall both have heavy smoke and water damage. It was amazing what the fire took and what it didn't. Josh and I found a Bible laying on the tv in the living room. The living room was so charred that you couldn't even tell you were walking on carpet. And yet this bible, covered in soot and charred material, was untouched. The pages were not charred....nothing. There were melted plastic things next to an old santa ornament that used to dance and juggle a snowball back and forth as it sang...and looked just fine. The way that fire moves is unreal. The old tree clock that hung on the wall in the living room looked like it could be cleaned. Dale had put up the Christmas tree already so it is pretty much a lost cause. We did find a black kitten hanging out in the spare document bedroom. Cracked me up. We chased him out since Gpa had bought cat food while he was in town. Gpa seems to still be running on adrenaline. He'd been in town buying clothes for him and Dale. He was pretty tired. They're getting a 5th wheel trailer tomorrow. Dale has been sleeping in the truck to watch the property. Thanks to all who have been praying for him.
