Disaster Strikes

By Flea - Be A Survivor

Well I write about disaster and one has hit me and my family.

Lightning hit our house (direct hit) and caused a fire in the attic. The worst part was the direct hit took out our electrical system, ruptured a gas line and WORST of all ruptured a water line and my entire first floor is flooded.

Luckily no one was hurt, we are all OK.

I will be quite busy so I won't be online, I do have some posts scheduled so you guys will have stuff to read but do me a favor and keep us in your prayers.



  1. I am so sorry to hear about your disaster, but am glad that you and your family are all ok!

    Rest assured that my prayers are with you and your family...if you need anything, please just let us know!

    Good luck and God bless...!

  2. Wow! You really took a hit! And you are posting to your blog to tell about it! I have to admire your spunk and attitude. So very glad all of your household is okay. No people missing or injured. May the fix-up come easy! God bless you all and good luck in the future. We will be thinking of you.


  3. Bummer! One of my coworkers had lightning strike their roof as well a couple of months ago. Insurance covered the damages, which were pretty considerable. Lightning hit the ridge of roof, which fried their electronics, alarm system (blew the glass breaker units across the room!) as well as some of their electronics. $500 deductible, but luckily, they are covered.

    Very sorry for your hit - I hope you and your family get the damage squared away soon - prayers for this to occur from us.

  4. Holy Crap!

    Ruptured gas line and a fire... It could have gotten a lot worse. If everyone is ok, all things considered, you can always replace everything else.

    Good luck and keep us posted.


  5. Flea, I'm glad you and yours are alright. I hope you can get everything sorted out buddy.

  6. Good luck! I'm so glad that you are all alright.

  7. Damn!
    Glad there are no casualties but that sucks major!
    Sounds like you are going to be VERY busy!

    Good luck dude!

  8. Dang, the attic is where I keep all my ammo. This could be bad...


  9. Wow, Thank God you are alright. Let us know if the Prepper Networks can do anything to help out...Maybe some of our readers are in the area and can lend some time with cleanup

  10. Flea,
    To begin, condolences are offered for the unfortunate circumstances, which you and yours now face.

    Thanks for letting your readers know why future postings may not be as regular as they have been, in the past. Would like to suggest that you keep those postings up as much as possible, though.

    We had two 100-year fires, out here, which occurred within a 4 year period of one another. In each case, I was fortunate enough to have maintained internet access. Thus, I was able to update close friends and family members, as to what was going on around this camp, on a regular basis. And, for me, writing those updates also took some of the edge off of the associated drama.

    Just a suggestion. Best of luck to you.

  11. Flea, good to hear you and yours are ok. I hope the fix goes well and without any drama, youre in my prayers:)

  12. Prayers will be with you and your family - blessings that all are okay. Let us know please if you need anything!!! Save the Preps!!!!

  13. Sending out thoughts and prayers to you and yours at this time. Glad to hear that you are all ok and safe.

  14. Hey Anon, get that ammo out of the attic if it isn't climate controlled - your components are breaking down exponentially fast. Ignore at your own peril.

  15. Sorry to hear about your misfortune. Stay safe and hope tomorrow is better.
