Would you be ready?? Update pg 12 in replies

In an emergancy situation??? this afternoon i helped my best friend pack her mothers house due to a wildfire. She is in the evacuation zone and also on vacation in iowa. My friends stepdad has demensia and had no idea what was going on. So now i am at home hoping the done extend the zone the 2 extra miles my way. I am packing and finding it very hard. My hunny watched the fire start and grow and all afternon i've been watching it creep up the mountain side and praying it doesnt break the ridge and come any closer. So far it is 2000 acres, 0% contained, and about 360 workers doing what they can. For more info koaa.com krdo.com or kktv.com waldo canyon fire. Tia for prayers.

It really is scary to think about. I wish i could post my pics. Maybe tomorrow i will go to my sisters and try to upload some. Thank you again. I am truely grateful.



Quoting celestegood:

Thank God. I will be praying, and I really, sincerely hope that the fire doesn't hurt anyone or take anyone's home. Its so scary to think of being in your situation.





Quoting Bradensmommy719:

We need all the help we can get. We have fire team 1 which is like the navy seals of firefighters, and half a dozen planes, helicopters trying to fight it. So far no structures lost and no one injuryed. So we are still all being hopeful. It means a lot to me that people care so much and will help each other in a time like this







Quoting celestegood:

EIther way, I'll pray and hope it gets put out!
