Surrounded by Fire!



Sorry we've been out of the loop but last week the mountains around our house caught fire and we had to evacuate! The firemen informed us while Jake and Mom were away so Gregory and I started the panic - I mean process of packing up. 








The computers went in the car first and we've been incommunicado ever since. We didn't have any damage and are getting things in order. We should return to normal in the next couple of days.








I did pick up MOCKINGJAY and read it. I'm hoping to get the review up soon! Sorry about not answering email or doing any commenting but we'll get to everything soon!


Thanks for understanding! Hope all is well with everyone!

Now that we know y'all are okay, I got a question for you - what books did you grab, if any?

Mother Nature is a force to reckon with.
