Fire! Fire! Fire!

On Sunday, September 4th, we had a mandatory evacuation due to wildfires that were burning about 2 miles from our house.  There is really only one way out of our subdivision by car so we had to leave so we could get out in case the fire spread across the road.  Mommy and daddy packed up really fast!  My furry sister Jordan got to ride in the car with us.  I was mad at her for barking and was not happy about being woken up from my nap and thrown into my car seat.  So, Mommy and Daddy had to stop right after we got out of the neighborhood to calm me down.  It was nice though because then we got to see the flames and smoke from the fire (from a safe distance).  It was a sad sight.  🙁

We drove to my hotel (The Westin!) at the Domain shopping area.  Jordan seemed to be pretty happy about it.  The hotel had lots of dogs evacuated from Steiner Ranch.  I got to sleep in the Heavenly Crib.  I am not sure why they called it Heavenly – it was hard as a rock.  🙁  We got to see quite a few of our friends and neighbors there which was nice.  On Monday we  went for lunch with some of our friends.  Then Jordan got to go shopping with Mommy and my godmother Kelly (and furry Maddie and Rebel) but I had to hang out at California Pizza Kitchen with Daddy and godfather Eric.  🙁  I really wanted to pick up some new threads so I was bummed…  

We got to go home on Tuesday.  It was probably for the best because I was really missing my bouncy chair.  Daddy went to Target and bought me a rocking chair instead of a bouncy chair to sit in at the Westin hotel but I didn’t like it that much.  Also, I was almost out of food since Mommy only packed one can of my special formula.  When we got home, Mommy and Daddy had to empty out the fridge since the food was bad due to power being lost.  It didn’t take them long though since they didn’t have any food in there to begin with.  I did hear that my “Mommy Juice” that was being stored in our friend’s deep freezer was lost due to the power outage.  I wasn’t too disappointed about it but Mommy was a little bummed.  She said it took her a long time to make that juice for me. 

Our house was not affected by the fires.  The firemen did an amazing job and only about 25 homes were completely destroyed and 50 damaged.
