    Remember when I was talking about how my school was burning? Well the whole damn mountain is on fire! We might have to evacuate soon >_> Apparently 30 houses in Lake Arrowhead (San Bernardino Mountains) have already burned down. I'm really afraid we might lose everything... So yeah, if I don't log on for a few days this is why.

    Heres hoping our house doesn't burn down, I'm off to pack the car...

    Oh wow, crap!
    I hope everything will be fine!

    It's at moments like this that I'm happy that I live in this little boring country where nothing ever happens.

    Damn. I heard about those fires on the radio this morning, I hope they miss you.

    For anyone who doesn't know what's going on, California is burning.

    this will sound harsh but i swear, i am not trying to be a prick.

    losing everything (or a good bit of your stuff) will not be the end of the world. yes, it will suck BUT at the same time you will be able to recover.

    but it would be nice to see nothing continue along these lines. but what is the deal there? is there a drought?

    also, i'm sure your parents have insurance but remember to pack those irreplaceables that a check from SafeCo or State Farm can't replace.

    Oh man, what a nightmare! Good luck, I hope your possessions come out unscathed.
    Keep us informed if you can.
    If you have to leave, don't forget your family albums.

    Arson. Rumors state San Diego is being evacuated. Is it true? We're loading up the car now and may head out in a few hours.

    ---On the bright side my friend in LA has a 360, so I'll get to play halo 3 while we stay @ his home.

    I hope San Diego isn't being evacuated! I'm at work LOL

    It's smoky as fuck outside, my eyes are burning a bit but we've got stuff to do. Here's hoping it doesn't make it's way down to my place!

    Leaving now, bye everyone.

    PS San Diego IS being evacuated! The outskirts at least.

    What sucks is if the home burns down our property is too close to the road to rebuild, we'll get shafted like the new orleanians.

    I really, really do hope your house (and everyone's there) will come out of it unscathed!
    This is a very scary situation!
