You never think it'll happen to you.
Until it does.
Our house went up in flames at 12:35 a.m. on Sunday, June 5. All of the people barely made it out and most of the pets.
Momma discovered Clementine and I safe in our TARDIS backpack late Sunday afternoon. (We're sunbathing in the nude for now.) Thankfully she hadn't taken us out yet after returning from Phoenix Comicon that afternoon.
We are smoky and wet but salvageable. The house is a complete loss and Momma, family, and friends are still salvaging items from the ruins.
Sadly, two cats did not escape and Grandpoppa's car was totalled, too.
Keep the people you love close.
