Update on this mornings events

well its now 6.00am. The police, firebrigade, and csi have all gone. The csi will be back in the morning to examine the crime scene and hopefully tell us exactly how the fires started.
Our next door neighbour said that at 2.30 approx, he heard people talking but thought they were just walking through. We live in a semi rural area and people dont often walk around here, but as we have a hall up the road and there were a couple of parties in the area, he assumed it was just teenagers going home.
Then at 3.00am he heard the blasts too! We are so very lucky that I am not a heavy sleeper, that hubby had the fire extinquishers handy, and that he was able to get to the fire and put it out before the whole thing blew up.
Our ute, or as they are called in the USA, truck, is burnt inside the cabin, but luckily it did not egnite. The customers truck, which a tipper, looks like that will be a write off.
The police seem to think it may not have been a random attack. They ask if we had any enamies, or people who held grudges. We can honestly say that no, we do not! But you can never know what people are thinking. It may have been the customer they targeted, so the police will speak with them as well. So now hubby has gone back to bed, but I am so wired up now sleep will not come easily.
This has made me feel very sick in the tummy, to think there are people in the world who could do these things.
I hope the police find them, and we find out what its all about.
But in the meantime there is nothing I can do about it so I will try to put it out of my mind. Although I think that in the near future at least I will be sleeping even more lightly.
thanks for listening.
see ya

Please stay safe Angela.

Why on earth would someone want to to this, and terrorize people in the process, simply awful.

Take good care,

I hope they find out who did it and why, it is a worry not knowing why.
