The fire swept through our neighborhood, but fortunately our home is still standing. We were evacuated from our home for a week, so we stayed in a friend's apartment for 2 nights, then went to our house in Tucson and slept on an air mattress there. Thank goodness our tenants had not moved in yet, or we would have had no place to go. Our families were awesome, they brought us sheets, towels and other necessities that we needed while we were there. We are now back in our home and trying to get back to normal.
Here are a few pictures. This is the view outside my kitchen window last Tuesday when we were evacuated:
The fire did not even hit our neighborhood that day; that happened on Thursday.
How close it came:
We feel very fortunate and blessed to still have our home; some lost everything they owned. Our community has been awesome through this whole tragedy, helping and supporting one another. We plan to help out others as best we can; it is the least we can do.
