Funny how blowtorches and wood don't go so well together.

(Several years ago, an hour after plumbers left, a 4 story apartment building at our corner went up.

 

Husband, who is wont to take on every sort of project, keeps a thin panel of asbestos for just such close-to-wood blowtorch work.   Plus a heavy duty spray bottle of water close at hand.)

 

And a friend on the scene reports that an early morning walk revealed major stained glass windows intact, contrary to some news reports yesterday.

They should have finished the job during the revolution, but maybe now with the retail floor and the museum of religious pedophilia sponsored by LVMH and L'Oreal it'll be better.

It is heartbreaking to see a house of God in flames.

Rose Windows and pipe organ are fine! Most of the altar also escaped damage although of the statues flanking it lost its head.

Have a great line for this, but the powers that be won't allow it - too bad. I'll just amuse myself and laugh alone.

Never knew that guy who is the French president  was a stand-up comic.

 

He said the cathedral would be re-built in five years. This is the French, the last thing they finished within five years was an omelette.

It only took them three years to build the Millau Viaduct.

Despite the protective relics in the spire not quite doing their job, maybe new, improved relics will speed construction.

What about the photo, which was widely circulated yesterday, showing Jesus in the flames as the tower collapsed?
