Seems to be the popular opinion. I cleaned it up best I could, loaded up with neosporin and re wrapped it for tonight. Guess I'll go to the clinic in the morning.

Get your hand attended to

My Harley was sitting out in the driveway, I was just getting everything out while I was waiting for the firefighters. So I was trying to ride that top heavy bagger thru the mud. I got it in without dropping it, that was a victory right there. My tractors and skid steer get to spend the night in the rain. I did start the excavator but I didn't try to move it, some of the hoses look pretty sketchy. I think that's where I burnt my hand, it was right next to Jack's bike and I jumped on it but it was too hot to move. So then I got a tractor and a chain and dragged his bike out. Can't believe how bad his bike is, his aluminum wheels melted off, just piles of melted aluminum now. My sister-in-law said she didn't know I could move that fast. Said what the hell, not gonna stand there with marshmallows, Have a lifetime's worth of tools and equipment in there.

What a sick feeling looking around down there, my heart really goes out to anyone who's lost a house, damn I can't even imagine that!

Oh well, I called my insurance agent and left a message. I've been paying a lot for a farm & ranch policy. Need a new roof on the barn, replace the stuff that burnt and get everything cleaned up. Bad part is, this time tomorrow it's supposed to drop into the teens. Think I'm gonna be busy.

That'd be nice! I'll spend the day tomorrow getting pics and doing inventory. Gotta get most of the water out or it'll be a skating rink tomorrow night. Temps heading south of the freezing mark till Thur or Fri

there is nothing about this that is ok but if insurance can put stuff right its fixable and its all just stuff...
unless the 6.0 was hurt
Both truck were parked right outside in case I needed the block heater. Had to move those to get the tractors, bike and skidsteer out.

Note to self...teach Jack how to wire stuff!

His 4 wheeler burnt to the ground, caught my side by side which also burnt to the ground. Dragged both outside but the machine shed was already burning. Got the tractors and Harley out. Steel building with wood purlins, those caught and the alum roof is gone in places. My mini excavator is damaged, that was the only pc of equipment I couldn't get out. Bunch of tools and supplies are damaged. Gonna have to wait till morning to see how bad. Volunteer firefighters did good, a BUNCH of them showed up. My wife called 911 and said barn fire so that put the big alarm out.
They tried to take me to the hospital for some 3rd degree burns on my hand, said no thanks. Smoke inhalation was worse than that. I was dragging everything I could out, saved a lot. Darn sure could've been worse. I'll get some pics tomorrow, finally got a better potato.

After dragging his bike out but before it really got going. Look close you can see my topside creeper in this pic. Frame survived, no more top cushion.



His bike
