I have been so lucky that this fire has not come near my home. The closest it was I think was about 15-20 miles but then the winds shifted and it started to go back the other way. I have been keeping an eye on the news, answering the text messages from co-workers and family.
I will not be required to return to work until Friday as things stand now. I am waiting to hear from my supervisor. He's the type of guy to call everyone to make sure they're ok...he hasn't which leads me to believe he was evacuated. (I believe) he lives in an area that was hit pretty hard. So I am keeping good thoughts going his way.
The govenater was down here all day surveying the scene and Bush will be here on Thursday. FEMA arrived earlier today also. heh, I keep say FEMA's here ya'all! ala Britney Spears.
I have to say, I love fire fighters. I love them. They are working so hard to keep as many structures standing as possible. Working days straight with little sleep. I love them. I am sending them extra special good thoughts.
Thank you all for your thoughts and kind words. It's nice to know you have love coming your way when your scared and worried out of your mind.
