San Diego Fires

Wildfires have been burning in various places throughout San Diego County since Tuesday and I just want to take this time to say THANK YOU to all the firefighters and emergency personnel who are helping to put them out and get people out safely. It's frightening to know that the winds can pick up an ember and set a house ablaze so easily. My condolences go out to those who have lost their homes and to the family and friends of the one person who was killed in Carlsbad.

Our bags have been packed since we saw the smoke from the small Scripps Ranch fire from our backyard on Wednesday. I highly doubt another fire will start in our area but you just never know. Better to be prepared then to be caught off guard! Here is a link to a great emergency evacuation list because we all know this may be the beginning of a very long fire season.

PS

The YMCA is offering FREE emergency child care at all locations in San Diego County from 6 AM - 6 PM for those who have been affected by the fires.

We have a big freezer for anyone who may need to store frozen BM.

  1. We had a fire evacuation last year and I was so unprepared! Now I finally keep a go-bag for the boys that I can grab quickly.
