Good wishes for the fire victims in Washington
August 3, 2016 11:52am CST
Some huge brush fires were burning up big patches of Central Washington yesterday. My mom, @poetnw, and my dad were evacuated by the sheriff. They got themselves, one cat, and their two dogs out. I got a call last night as they sheltered in a motel. I sincerely hope everything comes out all right - I know there have been structures destroyed and as of yesterday, the fire was somewhat contained but already 270 square miles had been affected by it. I wish the best for them. There's a good probability their property is fine but here's hoping so, and I hope the two cats who ran away rather than letting themselves be rescued are okay too.

@paigea It was like being in a car wreck. I looked up the hill and thought huh. Looks weird over there. Then slowly, getting redder. My brain started to speed up. I went to the shed and got a cat carrier and tried to think what I should get out and got the dogs collared and leashed and then the deputy at the door. Everything so slow yet so fast. A matter of minutes and I had to move it.
