Break In Case Of Fire…

We are in a drought. The temperatures have been over 100 for near 2 months… I don’t care what the weatherman says… I have a digital thermometer and it’s not in the sun… OVER 100 FOR NEAR 2 MONTHS!!!!
So Oklahoma is under a burn ban… the entire state.
Roy gave me the speech on what to do in case of fire… Call him! Call 911! Open the gate, and start waterin’ around the house!
“Don’t drag hoses! In this heat, you’ll die!!”
He has laid the hoses out already so I don’t have to drag them.
I have packed a bag with a change of clothes in it, packed up my laptop and all back up thingys, laid out a huge pillow case to scoop up cats into, and if I have time I’ll come back for photo albums.
I can put Ruffles in a bucket in the livin’ room that Roy uses as a trash can… the fish are on their own.
I can get Trixie into the car without a problem… Ralph may be a different story. He acts like such an ass when you let him out!
I just hope I don’t have to use my emergency plan… ever!
I think a fire is so much more worse than a tornado. With a tornado, you might be able to find some mementos and personal items but with a fire… it’s all gone!

Hugs, my friend. Take the important things and be safe. This summer sure has been hot. I hope that the rains come again soon.

Ooof, that sounds terribly scary and annoying!

Gina said...

Man that sounds so scary but I am really glad that you and Roy have come up with a smart plan! It's great to be prepared. Is there any relief in sight?

Kenzie Smith said...

That sounds very scary, but at least you guys have an emergency plan. I hope you don't ever had to use it!

Stacy Uncorked said...

Oh man I hope you won't have to utilize your emergency plan! I'm so ready for this eternal hot spell to go away already. I hate sweating when there's no good reason to do so, if you know what I mean! ;) Stay safe!!

I totally feel you on the heat wave thing. We've had the temp stick to a steady high 90 - low 100 for the past month, it's awful. Stay cool hon!

That sounds so scary, please be careful.

Wow, this kind of goes along with my post today. We're under burn bans too and some looney person out by my parents set a brush pile on fire and then left and went to town.... Here's your Sign!

We had a miserable summer last year. This year we've gotten some much needed rain. I do hope you all get some of that rain very soon.

I think that it is awesome that you are prepared for this particular emergency. Most people just try to wing it, but that's not a good idea when seconds count. I've been hoping that a hurricane will form, just to send us all some rain!
