Becoming Debt Free in 2009

Wildfires

Filed under: Random — ambercouric @ 9:58 am

I’ve spent the last three days watching the news and seeing the fires burn.   This is extremely sad.

Now, I just have to say something.  I understand being evacuated ( this is hurricane country).  I also understand the need (desire) to know what is going on with your home.  What I don’t understand is the people who are constantly complaining about not being able to get back into their homes.  The officials keep saying “as soon as it is SAFE”.    The officials are working around the clock and doing everything they can.   I just wish the tempers would cool a little and people would step back and realize that there has been a tremendous  accomplishment in that no lives have been lost.

I’m hoping the winds slow down.  Unfortunately, we aren’t expecting rain for at least a week.

  1. I agree with you that people need to stepback and be thankful for the efforts and work done by many to ensure their safety. A few days of not being allowed ‘home’ is a just a minor inconveniance. For us in Australia/Victoria, the shock and horror of recent bushfires with 200 lives lost is still strong. The strength and courage of the people who survived, while losing all material possesions, is absolutely amazing and inspiring.

  2. Wildfires are a frequent occurrence in So. California. It always angers me when I read about people who were ordered to evacuate but didn’t and have to be later saved by the firefighters. The reaction of people who are anxious about their homes are understandable, though. Hopefully calmer minds will prevail. My prayers are with you all in S.C.

  3. I hope the firefighters get it under control soon. I remember having a great time on a HS trip to Myrtle Beach. Some people may be anxious to check on pets that were left behind.

  4. Things are looking good for the fires. No deaths or human injuries.

    @Miss M – I understand about the pets. Most of the evacuees were retires and had time to get their pets. There were several pet shelters opened for these animals. There were a few pets that couldn’t be rescued but those were from the first day of the fire. One poor dog was on fire and the fireman rescued him. The dog is doing good.
