We have read that a slight spark from a light switch or electrical outlet would be all that is needed to explode a gas leak.
and so we are really lucky. At about 5 PM, I had made coffee from my coffee machine, which often sparks when turned on or off.
So, we had to wait until this morning that the gas company could come and assess the problem, and make sure the valve cut off the gas flow.
Tomorrow, an additional technician will come to replace the faulty pipe and valve system, so that we can cook again.
My gf's father tried to save a baby bird yesterday, but the bird died in the evening. My gf's grandmother thinks that the bird had to die to save our lives. It's a pretty good exchange, but the idea isn't exactly scientific.
The reading of events and omens is the provender of the Yi Qing and the traditional. But who knows? Maybe there is more to life than meets the eye.
