Living in the mountains, wild fires are not a new thing, but it's been about 10 years since there was a fire up there of this maganitude. This paticular fire has already claimed 2 lives. When I lived up there, we were evacuated for 3 different fires, which was really scary when we had the horses at home. But I was thinking, what would you grab if you only had a few minutes to get your most precious belongings out of your home?
For me, it's funny how much it's changed since having kids. The most important things I would take are the things that are important to them. Ava has a blanket and a baby that she adores. Andrew has a special blanket. Other than those, I would grab the dogs, my phone, computers and important documents. But really, even the documents could be replaced with a little work, so those would be the last things I grab. I could have us out of the house in less than 5 minutes. Everything else is replaceable.
How about you?
