Ain't Pretty No More

Yesterday I mentioned that I was worried about my favorite dollar store after a fire burned up some of the stores near it. Today I went over and had a look. The dollar store lives!



It was separated from the fire by one large store and was unharmed. They were even open for business and I bought some crap. Too bad I can't say the same for the utterly destroyed Beauty Land and the check cashing place.

With all those hair care products and stuff, Beauty Land must've went up like an ammo dump.

Update 1/31/09: I know this is of interest to absolutely no one, but here's a new article and a pretty cool slideshow.

Looks a touch sizzled, yes.

Near where we now live is an old railroad loading dock/warehouse -- all brick. It had a fire some time before we moved here. The city was cleaning it up at the beginning of last summer, but I guess the money dried up because now it's just a pile of brick and blackened wood.
