Fire! Fire! Fires?!

So as you know by now, I live in North San Diego County. And if you haven’t heard it on the news, there are 7 fires by my house.

Here’s my fire story.

I came home during lunch yesterday because I saw smoke and my mother was worried.
There are 12 people and 1 dog staying in my house.
They include my family and the family of my mom’s friend who were evacuated from their house.
A couple don’t speak English, so here is where my Spanish skills come in to play.
I have asthma so the smoke that comes into my house is kind of choking me.
By the front door is my bug out bag.
I cant do any homework because I’m stressed and there are loud, frantic Spanish people running a muck in my house.
There is a 10yr old girl and today is her birthday and she’s worried about her house being burned to ashes.
The view outside isn’t a pretty one.

But in the throws of all this mess we are like a big family, making jokes, listening to the news, playing music, and praying for the best.

I hope everyone can stay safe and find their houses intact when they return.
