Moving sucks already, but wait, there’s more! 9

So, our Sunday was to be spent moving our larger items of furniture with a borrowed pickup from our present abode to a new place in nearby New Albany, Indiana. While we were gone from apartment #2 getting stuff from apartment #1, a fire broke out in #2’s building.

We returned that afternoon to find workers crawling over the roof of the building, the Red Cross response team helping residents find hotel accommodations, and a bright yellow caution tape barring access to our part of the building. Our new apartment was now aflood in water and smelling strongly of wood smoke.

This after we had just got the cable and internet hooked up, and moved most of our kitchen stuff into the new kitchen, which now resembled a small wading pool.

Of the residents displaced by the fire, we got off easy, since we still can live in apartment #1 for another week and could store our undamaged stuff elsewhere in the complex. We lost a few small kitchen appliances and will have to launder some blankets. No biggie.

We will probably get a similar apartment to replace the one we lost. Everyone else affected, five other tenants, are holed up in a nearby hotel until the property management can figure out what to do with their residences.

    Ouch, sorry about the fire. Well, welcome to New Albany all the same. I knew once New Albany got its first book store it would be teeming with the intelligentsia.​ La Rosita on E. Market is a good Mexican restuarant and Zesto on Charlestown Rd serves a mean ice cream cone in the summer. Beware of New Albany institutions such as Tommy's and the Southside; they are disgusting.
