Here in Sheckyville we can be inspired by many things. Which is why we stay. However, when we have all the information of an incoming weather situation, we prepare. After cleaning all the drains and v-ditches, and doing a radio check a couple of times, Mrs. Shecky grabbed her suitcase and an umbrella. She packed and then put her feet up to listen in to the local radio for the next few hours. After all, what else is there to do in this situation. Four times today the notice came:
“Of course we will be alright”, Mrs. Shecky said to herself as she ripped the last fingernail off on her old bag hands.” “We have a few hours of prep and then it is all up to the Flood Guy”, (who we really do not want to meet). So she says to herself, “After so many of these situations, “YOU GOT THIS!” “You are already packed from the last one, ya think the styles have changed since the last pair of jeans you put in to the suitcase?” “Nope”… and so the story goes.
It is what it is and it is a good thing Mrs. Shecky knows Mr. Generator and if Mr. Generator doesn’t want to come out to play, Ms. Marriott down the road might be waiting for an old friend, and if Ms. Marriott is on a date, there is always Mr. Hilton and I just hope they accept last seasons jeans because Mrs. Shecky is not repacking… she is going shopping.
Til next time,
Oh dear. I just googled it it and it looks like the evacuation might have turned to mandatory. I will be anxiously awaiting your next post to see how you are doing… 🙏
It did turn into a mandatory. Thank you for your concern. It was just crazy fast. The fire left this area pretty much at the hands of luck. We had a little damage, but not much. The town however is still closed off as far as I know and they are still shoveling out of 8 feet in places. We are due for rain next week again… ugh.
I’m glad to hear your home didn’t have too much damage. Fires are crazy fast and really scary! We are survivors of the 2018 Paradise Camp Fire. I’m so sorry to hear that your town is closed and in the midst of disaster. Sending prayers and thoughts for strength and peace to you and yours! I’ll check in on you next week regarding more rain. Ugh. I’m so sorry you have to go through all this!
Paradise was so tragic. I had friends there. It was a cute town and it is still hard to believe that it isn’t there. So very sad.
Good job prepping Mrs. Shecky! Sending prayers that everything goes smoothly and without incident.
