4. Well, actually, GD
is solely meant for political discussion and posts like these get moved anyway.

I am glad that they are all safe and hope the community comes to their aid in rebuilding their lives.

5. A couple of friends are staying with us.
We were able to make a couple of trips and grabbed quite a bit from their apartment before the fire spread to it and we were forced to leave. It is completely destroyed now. They're here and as happy as possible under the circumstances I think.

8. oh no
Fires are the worst, loosing everything. I hope they were able to save something, like their pictures and their pets.
My house burned when I was about 15 (when I lived in NC) and I will never take that special crap for granted, it's all packed up ready to grab and run. It was over 20 years ago and I'm still freaked out thinking about fire :(
