What would YOU take??

What do you pack when you're being told that there is an emergency evacuation of your apartment complex? The first thing I turn for is my baby blanket. No joke. Before I even think about saving the life of my beloved cat Rocky, I choose to rescue my 23 years-and-8-month-old ratty old baby blanket. Seriously, it is my prized possession. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my cat, but there's just something about that dang baby blanket...

Ok, but seriously, I was trying to quickly get ready for my 12:00 staff meeting, anticipating Jenna's arrival any minute, when I get a text asking if my house is on fire. To which I quickly reply "no...." but run to the door and fling it open to find that the entire hillside across the street from my apartment is engulfed in flames. Fire trucks line my street, and screeching police cars are everywhere. My heart begins to beat uncontrollably... I soon find out that all of Hilltop Drive has been ordered to evacuate immediately. I'm not sure of where the fire is exactly, how it started, or why we're being evacuated, but I am sure of one thing: I'm not supposed to drive for another 3 weeks... So, I begin throwing random things into the first bag I can find, starting with my baby blanket of course! Then I start thinking of somebody, anybody who can bring me, rocky, and my blanket to safety...

To make this SUPER long story a bit shorter, Kristena saved the day, however I never had to actually evacuate my apartment. They lifted the evacuation before they got to my side of the street. They contained the fire, and no homes were harmed in the process. It was a pretty exciting day, that's for sure... HUGE planes flying right over my head, full of water... it was intense. I found this picture on the Record Searchlight web page... it was taken just down the street from my front door... crazy.

Dang. Crazy feeling, huh? We had a fire scare of our own earlier this summer and the first thing I reached for? My favorite pair of jeans.

Just glad you and Rocky are okay.

scary! I'm so glad you're okay and you didnt have to evacuate. My dad has instructions to bring the bag with the books in it and leave it on the table (although i still think it wouldve been more fun to just crash the staff meeting...lol). There's a postit note with your name taped to the bag. :) I put a couple extra books in there I thought you might like, but please don't feel obligated to read them. :) Stay safe! Hopefully I'll see you soon!
