Prayers for Family

March 28th, 2014 at 02:32 pm

My family could use some prayers.

Yesterday morning one of my parent's barn burnt down.

It was a giant over 100 year old barn. It was gone in only a few minutes and all that is let now is about 8ft deep of ashes.

It was so windy that it caught the surrounding park's field on fire, traveled 1/2 mile to the neighbor, and nearly caught their house on fire. They called in 3 fire departments, and managed to put it out right at the neighbors fence line, praise the Lord.

Thankfully the wind of blowing the opposite direction than it usually does. So it blew it away from the other barns, and my parents house. The barn that burnt was where they kept all their hay, it had no animals in it, so my goats are safe.

They lost all their hay, their lawn mower, motorcycle, and smaller items like wagons, wheel barrels, and some old farm equipment.

The barn was not insured because it was too old. Frown They are praying that the insurance will at least cover the fire call which will be a couple grand, and the replacement of the lawnmower and motorcycle.

They will also have to pay for the debris to be removed because there is no way to move all the ash by hand.

It could have been a lot worse, so they are counting their blessings. But it is still sad, and they are worried about financial problems.

    Oh, that's sad. I hope the insurance will kick in. I hate to see those old barns lost; they have their own special beauty. It is good that no one, human or mammal, was hurt.

    That is awful. And scary. So glad that everyone is safe, but sorry for the trouble it caused. Prayers for peace over the situation.
