Default Greenhouse fire pictures

Two fire pictures and one picture showing the same space in March of 2006.
All different view points)

All the Easter/Mother's Day Phals were in place and ready to put on their
show. They were late this year. So instead of flowers, like in the 2006
picture, they were still in bud. It would have been very pretty in here in
April and May.

I got plenty of words if you need any.

I have a clean-up crew here today. Already all the burned out benches are
gone and the plastic is coming off now. The metal structure can be cleaned.
Each metal bow is coated in melted burned plastic but I have already
demonstrated to 8 incredulous hirelings that elbow grease, a heat gun, a
scraper and some steal wool can make a 6 foot section of the worst damaged
bow look better than new in the time they were off eating lunch. I got
words if anybody needs them but I will hear no more of the "it can't be
done" kind.

Words - I'll just bet you have plenty! You'll never hear "It can't be done"
from me. Never. I've done too many impossible things in my life to ever
think that way.

I'm glad that you have the same attitude!

Any idea on how it started Al? Man what a mess. the Adjuster ever show
up, or you still waiting on Windex guy to come back? (You have to
laugh, or cry, numb just wears you out too fast.)

Good luck man.

Agreed, Tom, but read Al's philosophy up thread, and you know he's going to
be okay. Al, you go, baby!

you know, this totally sucks, but these pics make me think of a couple
things:

a LOT of the plants made it, and

the HOUSE seems to be ok.

when i first saw the notice on the website the other day, i thought "oh
CRAP--that greenhouse is attached to the HOUSE house-!" !

so that's something, i guess. what kind of fire detection system did
you have in the GH? (someday i'll tell y'all how i discovered all *my*
smoke detectors work... -eye roll-)

(and entirely non-related--carter & holmes sent me another catalog. on
top of it was a flyer for a local ballot initiative about fire retardent
materials. the way i picked the mail out of the box, the flyer (with a
picture of a burning house) looked like it was part of the catalog. i
said "oh hell not ANOTHER one-?!")

Oh the pain! Al, I'm so sorry. I can see how you were able to clean up the
framing and at least salvage that part of the disaster. sigh.

Pat Brennan, if you are around, you are a good friend.
