    Ok ladies and gents, just got a call from my DS and my nephew who is a fireman and there is a brush fire only a couple miles from my house-everything is so dry here-also got a call from the Electric comany today updating all the contact info for fire emergencies-how's that for timing! DS just texted saying we should start preparing-I'm in a panic! We have had 2 devistating fires here in Ramona in the past 8 years-it is a mountainous area and very dry right now. We have talked about making a master list of items to get out of the house in case of fire-in order of priority-, but just haven't done it yet. Guess what-I just started it! Anyway, waiting now to hear from them-DH is trying to get back from town, DS also trying to get home from same area-and I just hope they haven't closed off the road where they have to drive because I don't have a car here!!!! Anyway, just needed to talk to someone in my state of panic-hope it doesn't pose a threat to us and we don't have to end up evacuating! Been thru PLEANTY of cyclones (hurricanes) in the Pacific during the last 20 years, but NEVER a fire!! What I started to get at, is if you are in an area that is at risk of fires, GET A PLAN TOGETHER before it is too late. Got to go-

    Take a deep breath and start gathering what you must take.
    Don't forget medications and the paper work for those babies in your avatar. Hugs and prayers!
    Stay safe.
