Monday Morning Question of the Day

It's been super hot and super dry here in Texas 
for the past many, many, many months. 
It's also been super windy 
{30+ mph winds}
Which leads to some dangerous conditions- 
perfect for fires.
Last night there were several HUGE fires nearby
 that covered many, many thousands of miles.
The fires were so terrible that a major interstate was closed
and many people were evacuated from their homes. 

As of this morning over 30 homes have been destroyed 
and the fire is not even close to being contained.
We've been praying heavily for those poor people 
and for the firefighters fighting those fires. 

So my question for today is....

If you only had 15 minutes to leave your home,
 other than people and pets, 
what things would you take with you?


  1. I would take my scrapbooks and my great grandma's german bible. I have been thinking about this too. I so hope we get rain soon.

  2. I'd grab the pictures/my grandma's wedding rings. Everything else is replaceable.

  3. I would grab pictures, medications and lots of underwear.


  4. Our bible.
    Our laptops.
    Our computer storage device.
    Credit cards & check book.
    Clothes, and undies.
    Insurance paperwork.

    All else I leave to the fates and the really good firefighters.

    I hope that you all get some relief soon. It looks like it is going to be a long, hot summer for a lot of America. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone.

  5. Though I've been in this situation with hurricanes, I felt inept - could not make up my mind what to take. Still haven't prepared....which is deplorable!!! Thanks for the reminder. I need to do this ASAP.

  6. My medication.
    My laptop.
    All of the photos on the top of my entertainment center.
    My photo albums and yearbooks.
    Daisy's toys.

  7. Laptop, scrapbooks, photoalbums, my purse
