In the spirit of exploration, we take a look at what happens in the last
hours of an egg that is destroyed along with the house and home of its
host. I had noticed that Mike Cheponis' egg was not reporting data, and
sent a note to inquire, and let him know that something was amiss. As it
happens, plenty was amiss, and after a few days, I got a note from Mike
telling me what happened. He has given permission to add this material
to the exploratory database.

Roger, our house burned up on Sunday around 5:05 am local time. The
servers are completely burned up, and I'm afraid the egg was one of
I and my family made it out of the house OK, and we're currently living
in a hotel until we find a rental house; it seems as if our house will
need to be torn down and rebuilt.
I am hopeful that I'll have a permanent internet connection when we get
our rental (as I have a WISP, thank goodness). But I will need another
sensor. Also, do you know if the code has been ported to BSD unix?
Lastly, I wonder if my egg reported anything unusual before it was
engulfed in flame?
