Did anyone have to evacuate yesterday?
« on: February 28, 2011, 09:07:10 am »
I did not have to but there was fire way closer to my house than was comfortable.  At one point they reported a grass fire that was about 1 mile from my house.  Apparently it was not major and was quickly taken care of, but I did not want to wait around and find out differently the hard way; I loaded up my critters and made tracks north.  I had origninally planned to go stay at my friends house in town, and although she would have welcomed me with open arms I thought it might be a bit crowded with her 7 critters and my 7 critters. lol  So I opted to just go up to were Brett works and just stayed in the car, until I lost phone service and then moved further North to the grocery store and sat in their parking lot for a few hours until they gave the "all clear" for the Southern fires.

So what I learned yesterday was that I can load 5 dogs and 2 cats into my car in less than 5 minutes.  :lol: 
Another day in this carnival of souls
Another night settles in as quickly as it goes
The memories are shadows, ink on the page
And I can't seem to find my way home
