Emergency Time to Evacuate

Hi friends, what I thought was going to be a typical Monday night but I couldn’t have been more wrong.

On my way home from work this is what I saw…

And it only got worse when I got closer to home, this is the fire in our backyard.

My Aunt was evacuated from her house, not more then 3 miles away from where we live. We were getting nervous that we would have to evacuate soon, I had someone cover my kick boxing class( I couldn't teach) and Hubby and I began packing some suitcases.

I was in denial…Hubby asked me to grab things that I truly needed, and then it hit me. What couldn’t I live with out?

Clothes, shoes, movies, books, CD’s could all be replaced…but what did I really need. Pictures were a must as well as important documents, but what else?

When we finally got word that we were probably going to be ok it was late and now that we wouldn’t be evacuated we were stuck with two suitcases to unload, I am just glad we are ok for now.

The fires are a lot tamer, but it is still a little nerve wrecking. IMG_5227

Tonight's eat were a bit odd I had chocolate protein smoothie(when i thought I was going to kick boxing) and one of Hubby’s Lean Pocket at 10pm.

I need sleep, I am emotional exhausted and I am praying for the people that are in fear of losing their homes…

If you had to quickly evacuate from your home what would you take???

Last summer when I was in California (up near San Fran) there was a huge fire and I kept thinking about how scary it would be to leave my house because a fire was coming towards it! AH! I'm so glad you didn't have to!!!
I think I would take my laptop/back up drive for pictures and important documents. I would also take a huge container with pictures from when I was little that I drew and that sort of stuff. I'm not sure what else- its a crazy situation to picture...

Meghann said...

OMG Bobbi! Thank God everything is ok and I hope it continues to stay that way.

I've had to be evacuated from my home many times for both fires and hurricanes. I remember when I was in 8th grade and I was on vacation in Cancun when a fire was taken over the outskirts of my hometown. The fire got so big that our area had to be evacuated and there was nothing we could do because we were in a whole other country. I think it was the only time Titusville has probably made interantional news. Its not good when your small town make the front page of the paper in Cancun! Luckily everything turned out ok.

Lauren said...

Oh my gosh! I am glad you are okay. That seems terrifying.

I don't even know what I'd take. The most important thing to me is that my family and animals (dog, cat, and two bunnies) are safe! I'd probably grab my camera too, as that is pretty important to me.

Julie said...

Oh my gosh Bobbi, how scary. I'm praying for you and thinking of you and your family. I hope everything is okay. It looks so scary :(

Gosh, I honestly don't know what I would take. Important documents wouldn't even cross my mind, how bad is that?! I'd take all my clothes so I wont be naked. And my laptop.

seesaraheat said...

I'd take my dog. Other than that, I can't think of anything I couldn't live without. That's both strange and comforting somehow.

Growing Up Cameron said...

We recently moved to AZ, but I still remember the fires in Cali. We were evacuated once. The police blocked off our street, and my husband couldn't come home. I went into panic mode & froze. In the end I took pics, my dogs & pictures of our home. I wasn't sure if it would be the last one I would be able to take.

Thankfully the fires were put out before it reached our home.

Thank goodness you're ok now!

jgoreham said...

Last time there was a forest fire that close to my house, we took enough clothes to not be naked the next day and the pets (at the time, my hamster and the family cat) and that was it. Fortunately, not many people lost their homes- amazing, because the fire was so close! It burned all *around* some people's houses on their lawns!

Glad to see you are OK.
