We turned on the TV and saw the picture below. Jon told me not to worry, it probably would not get too close to us. So, we deiced to go on to Sandy where there was a family dinner being held. I spoke with our next door neighbor and said if it got closer to give us a call. At about 8:00 PM she called and said it's getting pretty bad. We headed home and could not believe what we were seeing from the freeway as we drove home. It was like a lava flow of flames down our mountain.When we got closer we could see everyone out on the streets watching or packing up. I asked Jon if we should go to his moms. He still did not think we had anything to worry about. Riley started to cry. I told him I was going to take the kids and go to his moms. At 9:00 PM we got the evacuation call on the phone. Now Jon was going to come with us. I still was not too worried. Only got a days worth of clothes for the kids and I.
Getting some sun! Paul, Pyper and Alanna.
