….bring long hot fires. This one hit close to home and some were being evacuated nearby.
Things were tense and all I can think about is…”what should I take”? A really scary thought….what are the most important things? My animals are dear to me but I’m not sure the chickens could come along. What would you do?
My first thoughts are photos…of my loved ones, here in the now and those I have lost. But then you think, nothing matters as much as life, not your home, nor your possessions! Just the essentials, you can start all over on the rest. So I would have hitched up ‘Driving Ms. Daisy’ and I would have had a new home on the road. And you know, I would have had the essentials, ‘cause she is already packed with them. As she always is throughout the summer.
So my plan was….fill my tote with the essentials, phone, camera, money, the irreplaceable photo albums, business files and then hook up my vintage trailer and head out. A plan in the making. Do you think I forgot something?
Just to let you know we are on high alert here. The copters with water buckets are flying over but we are not in immediate danger yet. I will keep you posted.
