Wednesday Worthy

Today I don’t have a super sexy guy, what I have are my personal heroes this week:

The firefighters are battling wildfires all over California. As for the fire that broke out Monday in the hills right over my house, as of last night when I wrote this blog, they’ve kept the fire from jumping the ridgeline. That line is really important, once it gets over that ridge, we are in serious trouble here in my neighborhood, and a couple neighboring neighborhoods. We are very grateful for how hard the firefighters are working, along with the pilots flying the nonstop water and fire-retardant dropping runs.

In other news, the A/C repair guy should be out today. We are desperately hoping he can fix the air TODAY. We’ve had Maggie in boarding for two nights now, and I hope to pick her up this afternoon. But if the A/C isn’t fixed or the fire flares up, we may have to leave her another night where she’s safe and cool.

Next week, I hope to bring back the Wednesday Worth Hunk :-)

    Yep, those guys are amazing.

    Positive thoughts they hold the ridge for you. And that the AC guy works his magic today. :hugs:

    Fingers crossed that your firefighters hold the ridge and the AC gets fixed–cheap and fast.

    Holy carp! I had no idea. I’ve been deep in the writing cave. Yes, those wildland firefighters are made of awesomesauce! Holding and sending good thoughts to them and to y’all. Just in case, if you haven’t already, make your plans. Decide what is absolutely the most important things that are irreplaceable. Get them packed up and sitting where you can grab them, through them in the car and go. Make sure you have a file with all your important paperwork and keep it with your car keys/purse/whatever you’ll be sure to grab if you have 5 minutes to evacuate.

    Now, with any luck, by giving you that advice, I have jinxed the fire and it will leave you alone! Still, be prepared. Will be thinking of y’all!

    And yeah, that AC needs to get fixed ASAP so Maggie can come home and y’all can be cool.

    B.E., thanks. The fire has jumped the ridge, and we’re ready to go if need be. Long week here.

    Marianne, thanks. It’s getting more dire so we’re ready to go. It’s so depressing that some jerked set this fire. He’s been arrested, but how can one person do so much damage? Sigh…

    Silver, thanks. All great tips. We keep our important papers in a box ready to go. This isn’t our first rodeo, unfortunately. We’re ready to load up in we have to, and it’s looking more and more like we will.

    You all stay safe!!

    These men and women are true heroes! Glad they got the SCUM BAG that set the fire. I hope you are okay. I am keeping you all in my prayers.
