My Town Has Burned

By now I am sure you all have heard about the fires in my city of Fort McMurray, Alberta. I was at work 1 hour south when the evacuation came into affect. My husband drove north with our cats and was put up in a camp on his job site. My company put me up for a night until on May 4th – the fire had spread very quickly and started to burn my worksite. I was evacuated at 10pm. It was scary. To the right of the road were flames, so high, the sky was red. I drove all night until I reached Edmonton. I had worked all day so I was up 24 hours but the 7 hour drive seem to fly. Adrenaline is a powerful thing. My husband is flying to Edmonton tonight. As of today my house is still okay. I am safe. It is almost unthinkable that this is happening. The fire fighters will be fighting this for weeks and weeks. I have no idea when the city will be safe for people to return. I do know once we do return we will be shocked at the devastation.
