Yowser. It sounds like it was a good thing you were there.

I never run the dryer, washer, dishwasher, or oven when there isn't someone home to keep an eye on them.

The oven or the crockpot are the only appliances I will leave on when I leave the house.

And the fridge and the freezer.

Anyway .. time for a new dryer
Scary moments. Our machines downstairs only cost us $1.25 per load. Commercial ones are much higher.

I never leave anything - including lights - on when we aren't home. something that my Mom taught me when I was young .. and what happened yesterday is exactly the reason why. I don't even run the dishwasher when I go to bed .. everything is off even then.

Sorry to hear about your dryer MrsLMB. I have known two people (both from my church years ago) who lost their homes to dryer fires. One of them was gone and the other was wheelchair-bound. Fortunately they, and you, are ok.

****************

I just wrote a little in my blog awhile ago. Then I had some ice cream. Now I am watching an episode of "Bones" on HuluPlus.
