In the 8 years that we've lived here, I've only loaded up my pics once...and that fire was literally less than 2 miles away....close enough that we could hear the fire crews talking.
I really don't think that we will be in any danger...but I'd just rather have things ready 'cause you shouldn't try to dare mother nature

good news/bad news....I think that this will FORCE me to tackle the office for cleaning. Need to get it organized so that next year things will be easier to grab if need be ('cause with the words "it never rains in Southern California" comes "but it burns great!!"

oh Starla......that is just so scary! I am glad you are organized and ready to go if you need to but I will keep praying that you don't have to.

45 degrees in August is just, well.....wrong! We woke up to about 60 this morning with a high around 85 today. Sounds about perfect to me.

Stay safe and hang in there at work Starla. I am sure it is a bit hard to concentrate with the fires being only a few miles away.

yeah, I'm wearing jeans today myself. The librarian at school told me that we were in for 7 years of cool summers and bad winters here in MI. I think that was according to the farmers' almanac. All the same...it's not fun summer weather.

Well, just went online to check the status of the fire ....up to 900 acres and high potential for growth. So far we look to be ok according to the fire map. Guess a dozer working on a fire break hit a power pole...that would explain our power outage in the wee hours!

Just a quick update....right now they are making a stand at the bottom of our hill. No mandatory evacs yet, but if we leave, they won't let us back up the hill. We are loading the pics and some clothes in the truck just in case (hate to panic in the middle of the night)...

Keep your fingers crossed/prayers going....this is a second fire that was started this afternoon (gotta luv all the kooks that come out during fire season.....first one was arson...this one looks like it too)

DH just left to help a friend's dad load up some stuff....they are right off the canyon and the wash so they will get it if it jumps the road

If it makes it across the road and to the wash....we will probably have to go too....our house is on the wash

How do you plan for clothes, etc. and where do you go? Is there a center that everyone goes to or do you hit up your friends?

Should have said...but higher up....
Have one neighbor saying he won't leave. Not worth staying is my opinion. Sooo, we leave for nothing...beats staying and risking NOT being able to leave
Besides, SO not worth that risk with my kiddos

Well, if you let them stay up half the night talking and giggling, they will sleep in!

True. As hard as it would be to lose your stuff, things are replaceable, but people and pets not.

Well, I packed everyone enough for 3 days (ok...shorts, t-shirts, underwear)....didn't pack the toiletries...figure that is easy to get...
the car is packed with the pictures (which I'll probably be unloading in the am...but again...better that than not getting them!!)

They do have the community center as a go to....but it is probably full with the evacuees from the Oak Glen fire....we would go to my IL's or a friends house

Kinda wonder tho.....a little while ago, a whole caravan of people WHO OBVIOUSLY DID NOT BELONG IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD went tearing thru. Gotta wonder if they are going to sit and wait for people to leave and break into houses.....which would be just great. One neighbor (who used to do the citizen patrol) said that the c. patrol was called in to sit at the parking lot of the community center because all the hoodlums try to break into peoples cars since they are loaded with all their belongings

I meant to do the challenge today, but decided to do one for Gina K's release instead, maybe win something. Would that be cool?

I seriously need to get this room cleaned. Then I could stamp any time of day or night and not disturb anyone.

DH just called and is TICKED!! hehe....seems his buddy's dad is having them move his junker cars that he tries to sell!! He went down there to move VALUABLES!! LOL
But, good news, the road out to the top of the canyon is open (the road going down....CLOSED!) and he says that the fire looks like it is getting somewhat under control from that end....soooo, hoping that all this was for nothing!

Mine has been sleeping downstairs (says I snore) and he goes to bed anytime as early as 8 or much later. Since I've been stamping in the kitchen and the family room is next to it (open with a half wall), it's kinda hard for me to stamp in there (or wash dishes late at night or bake cookies, etc.) I'm almost always up till at least midnight... or 1 or 2... well, usually not later than 1:30. And up at 6:25.

hmmmm.....seems to be a little "flare up"
I'm a pretty light sleeper, too. Train whistle across the valley wakes me. Jet going over (high up) wakes me. Car with a noisy engine wakes me. Everyone else in the fam sleeps like the dead. And of course, if I wake up, I have to p and get a drink.
