California On Fire πŸ”₯

This is will be a quick one. These pictures are at 2pm Thursday.

We have been evacuated! We’re on the Hill Fire πŸ”₯ side/ Thousand Oaks… it’s so sad. It’s overwhelming and confusing.

We’ve never dealt with anything like this ever. I’m lost. I’m literally lost. I can’t find my way around on a normal day but now trying to figure out where to go all the roads are closed and everyone doing the same thing as me…yeah, that bought my blood pressure up!

The traffic was like nothing I’ve ever seen in my life. Fortunately, I left early with the kids and dogs. I was in awful traffic but nothing like my poor husband. He drove for hours with Fire πŸ”₯ on both sides of him.

People were running out of gas while wait in traffic. The smoke πŸ’¨ was and is still terrible! Which is why we are still in a mandatory evacuation.

To top off the stress and heartache this community is going through, it was less then 24 hours that we woke up to the news of a mass shooting in Thousand Oaks! Thirteen beautiful, innocent souls, gone. Some of the people who are being evacuated due to the fires, may have lost a family member… and a home. This is too much!

We see terrible things on TV, we feel awful, we donate money, blood and time to help others… I’m telling you it’s different being in the middle of it. We haven’t even seen the real devastation yet. We haven’t gone back yet. I’m scared too.

We’re staying in a hotel about an hour away. My head is spinning. I don’t know our next move. I don’t know where to go? We were in the middle of getting a house but I don’t know what’s going on now. Just a lot of waiting.

Good Lord help us.

That’s all for now. Please pray πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ
