When all is done and said we finally realize what is important. Many people have had to make choices of what to take and what to leave behind during the raging fires in southern California.
Many are packing their pictures, family mementos as well as survival necessities. There is one on my blog roll that is currently going through this horrific ordeal and has documented what is going on from an inside view.
Having lost a house myself when I was 13 you realize that houses can be rebuilt and clothes can be purchased.
I know that I am not alone in sending everyone in Southern California my thoughts, prayers and hope for a speedy return to your homes.
