Catastrophic

Holy crap, you guys. 

You know it's bad when you get a 
text message from the state government...


Tomorrow is forecast to be the Worst Fire Danger Day Ever and my little shack is in the fire zone. 

Fuck.

That shack is everything I have.

And the potential loss of life 
- both human and animal - 
is horrifying.

Stay safe, everybody.

I'm scared. 

Sarah

Sarah, don't be scared. Your shack has magical powers, it is guarded by kind spirits of fierce women and water gods. Okay, so I'm nervous on your behalf too... I want you (and everybody else too) to be safe. Okay, I'm sending you hope and good vibes and so will everybody else who knows about this. Hang on!!!

What a terrifying message to receive. Thinking of you & your beloved little shack. If I could blow a cool change down your way I would. What a wretched summer. Take care of you. Xx

'And this too, shall pass'. Say it a million times. It'll be over soon, you and everything you have will never change.
Stay beautiful.

Shit!! That is bad, bad, bad :( I hope it turns out to be not as bad as they made it sound.

Shacks can be replaced dear Sarah. You, on the other hand are one of a kind! Stay safe.

Been there, Sarah. We have fire season here in So Cal in late summer and early fall when the Santa Ana winds pick up. Almost had to evacuate myself a couple of years back. Could see the fire coming down the hills and the property was dusted with ash. A friend was ready to put us up. Remember that those warnings are for a wide range of areas and most will not be affected. But take no chances and stay safe. xxx

Val Sparkle said...

I wish you the biggest bucket of luck to save your shack! Please keep yourself safe.

Ivy Black said...

Fuck it.

I'm sending all sorts of cool non-fire vibes to you. I live in Southern California and several years ago we were evacuated because of brush fires it is VERY SCARY! Our little house only sustained smoke damage. Wheh! Gooooooood Luck! LOVE! Connie*

MistressCatgirl said...

Please stay safe Sarah. Buildings can be rebuilt but a life cannot. It sounds cliche but it's true. Be safe and be watchful.

Krista said...

This is super scary Sarah, I'm so sorry. Coming from Southern CA I know how serious fires can be. Please tell me you are no where near all of this right now, items can be replaced you cannot.

Keeping your lil shack in my prayers.

Here's hoping you and your friends and family are safe. I have a cousin in Rosedale, I hope he is OK too.

Penny-Rose said...

I wish I could send you some of the rain we experienced on our holiday on West Coast of NZ. It was raining so much it was like milk. I hope you and your little shack will be bypassed by the flames, I would be terrified. Take heart in all the support being sent your way from all your blogging friends. P-Rxx

BellaBean Vintage said...

Shite, it looks pretty dire on the news here - think of you and everyone .... sending you good thoughts xxx

CityScape Skybaby said...

I saw reports on the news here and it looked terrifying Sarah, I hope by now the danger has passed and you and your lovely little shack are both safe and sound. Take care of yourself. xx

delia hornbook said...

Oh My goodness im so sorry to hear this. I hope its just a warning and it doesn't happen. At the end of the day remember your life is more important than material things they can always be replaced i know thats of no comfort and i would be gutted to lose my things. Thinking of you and keeping my fingers crossed. Big hugs, dee xxx

Forest City Fashionista said...

That would scare the crap out of me too! We're all keeping our fingers crossed, and sending positive vibes for the safety of you and your lovely shack. However, your safety is of prime importance, so if you have to get out of there, please do, as there is always more stuff, but only one you!

Trashsparkle said...

Wish we could just send all our rain (and flood water) over to Australia to damp everything down and put those fires out.... the world's far too freaky at the moment :( xxx

Sue @ A Colourful Canvas said...

Sarah, my first visit here, and I find you in the midst of a nightmare. So sorry to hear that mother nature is ravaging your bit of paradise. Sending positive waves of thought that you, your neighbours, and the beasties in the area stay safe!
