Can't Blame it all on Sandy | Little Lady Little City: Can't Blame it all on Sandy

Can't Blame it all on Sandy

Yesterday was kind of the worst, if you follow me on twitter than you problem saw a tweet about it. Even though we are in WV we got hit with Sandy, or I guess rather the mega storm that was made by another cold front and Sandy joining forces. 

Thankfully it wasn't anything too bad just lots of wind and lots of rain, which unfortunately was very bad for our poor little not fully finished house. Our roof decided to spring at least 10 holes by the nights end, with about 4 of them being directly over my newly constructed computer area. Luckily we caught those in time before any of my work stuff got waterlogged. So we moved my stuff over to part of Will's desk that wasn't getting used and played the 'Where did that drip sound come from' game. That is, until we noticed huge billowing smoke clouds coming out of our dryer vent. That's right on top of trying to fix a leaky roof we also had to deal with our dryer that decided it would help combat the water dripping into the house by catching itself on fire. 
The little snowman we made with the snow on the table this morning.
Maybe it's because yesterday has passed and we woke up to a little snow (which is always lovely), but I can't help just laughing thinking about all of that stuff happening. It just seriously seems all kinds of ridiculous.

Have you guys had a horrible day that you can now look back at and just laugh?

Hope everyone is having a lovely day filled with no dryer fires and leaky roofs.

  1. I like your optimistic attitude and little snowman! :) Thankfully my area in New York wasn't too bad, just lots of rain and wind and some power outages.

  2. Having a good sense of humor about these things is the key to happiness, trust me, & there is no doubt given this post that you are going to have a pretty durned happy life! While it was no doubt frustrating & difficult, it will definitely be a story you'll be telling for years to come. And hey, now you know where the leaks are right? Awesome attitude {& sooooo refreshing in the blogosphere where everyone seems to make a big deal out of everything!}

  3. That sounds terrible (and what a sad snowman to go with it)! I think those two events happening in one night means you won't have aaaaany more bad luck for like the next year. You can hope right? Good luck getting your poor house back to normal!

  8. Oh no :( that's no fun. I'm really sorry to hear that you had such a rough time and WTH your dryer just HAD to catch on fire at the same time? I have days like that, where it's like "are you kidding" every five minutes. Hang in there!! I'm sure the snow is lovely up there.

  10. Oh, I've definitely had days where every little thing goes wrong and then one stupid thing makes you laugh. Glad you feel a bit better, and hope your house stays a bit dryer!

  11. Gah. I'm sorry to hear you were hit by the storm and that your house suffered. I'm glad you were able to laugh it off after.
    This isn't quite on the same level, but last week I saw a mouse in my house and I FLIPPED OUT. I was mid-way through a freelance project that needed to get done and I was in my PJs and I did not want to deal with the situation at all. So, I ended up freaking out at the bf for no reason... then I went and got traps and calmed down, picked up some fancy coffees and went home, apologized and laughed at my own ridiculousness. Oi! Laughing it off definitely feels good. And realizing that life is life and shits gonna go down whether you're laughing or crying definitely helps you choose laughing.

  12. Could have been much worse, Amanda. Think of it that way. :::smiling::: We West Virginians are a tough breed :)

  13. Totally not the same, but last week Google Weather told me that our little stint of rain here in San Francisco was over, so I left the house in my Toms and left the umbrella and rain boots at home, only to get off the train to a crappy downpour and nearly slipping and faceplanting on a crowded street corner... I managed to catch my balance, but not before the coffee cup in my hands splashed coffee in my face and hair. Soaked shoes, coffee hair, feeling like I looked like a grumpy wet dog as I stumbled into work to sit for 9 hours... boy, it was the pits.

    Not *even* on the same level, but I'm so glad that you and Will are safe! That sounds so lousy, but it's awesome that you can take a minute and laugh about it once it's passed. <3
