A Narrow Escape.

Well, my trusty toaster oven is no more.

This morning I put some bread in to toast, turned around to give Hueston some breakfast, and heard a sizzling sound. I turned back to see smoke pouring out of the toaster from all sides, and when I got closer, I saw there were actual flames!

I quickly turned it off, unplugged it, and pulled it into the sink. My huge container of baking soda was handy, so I opened the toaster door enough to throw a few cupfuls in, which smothered the fire.

No one was injured and no other appliances or belongings damaged in this incident. :)

Now Hueston and I are enjoying a breezy day inside, with all the windows open and all the fans going full speed ahead.
