This is really Scary!!(and it has nothing to do with Halloween)


A while back we kept smelling this funky electrical type smell every time we would run the dishwasher. We just couldn't figure out what it was. I like to run my dishwasher in the middle of the night and we would wake up to this weird smell again. Now, I have been known to ignore things like this and just hope that they'll go away and sometimes they do. But most of the time, I find out what's going on because some major catastrophe occurs due to my ignorance. Well, we ran the dishwasher before we went to bed to try to discover what was causing this nasty smell and Rich opened the cupboard underneath the sink where the dishwasher and garbage disposal were plugged in and he saw a bright red glow. Yes, this is a picture of what was causing the mystery stink. VERY scary!! I really can't believe our house didn't burn down! The plug from the dishwasher was melted onto the outlet so the electrician had to cut the cord! VERY, VERY scary!!

I was thinking about this story you told me the other day and checking under my sink. I am totally paranoid about the dishwasher and now the dryer just because I am nuts. So glad your house didn't burn down!!

Holy cow! CREEPY! I had a black/smelly outlet from a plug in air freshener/night light. Stay alive out there! Caleb will be in Lafayette on Wed. evening I think. He may have to meet with co-workers that night though. I need a LA fix even if it is through him!
