I’m currently on a cross country road trip with my mom. Tonight we were settled into our hotel room for the evening. She was sleeping soundly in her room when I heard some loud talking in the hallway. 📢
It was a fire alarm...and not a drill! 🆘
This is not my first fire 🔥 evacuation. I’ve gone through 3 wildfire 🔥 evacuations over the years. This does not compare to that at all.
However, it’s very telling what you grab in a hurry during an evacuation. It tells what is important to you.
I grabbed my camera and all lenses, my external hard drive with all of my images on it, my winter jacket (as I’m in Chicago and it is ❄️), and my makeup.
What would you grab if you were evacuated? What is important to you? Grabbing my makeup surprised me. 😕
I am in no way disrespecting the terrible that are still burning in my home state of . My heart breaks for all those affected and all those that have lost their lives.
Thankfully ours was a small fire that was quickly put out. 🔥
