Synopsis: Getting home after a long day's work to find your house flying off - now there's an upsetting situation. What can you do? Who should you ask for help? As we all know, buildings don't come with an instruction manual, but even if they did, would anyone think to include a chapter on airborne houses? This story is about that rare phenomenon: a house that takes a notion to take off. There isn't an easy solution to such an unusual event, and the owner of this house doesn't know what to do. Where do you start when your house flies away? The fire department? The police? The civil aviation department? Not easy at all. Still, every cloud has a silver lining, as this owner discovers when his house comes back down to earth.
