FMJ - Day 928

October 14: Eventhough the fires burned through the night, the kids still had school. So, the morning was spent driving them back to Simi Valley and dropping them late to school. I found a nickel at Maya's school. I went to Rubio's in Simi Valley for lunch to at a view of the fires and smoke plume which luckily was drift west along the Santa Susana Mountains. The winds shift and now the fire had moved across the mountains in Simi Valley near our house. TIME TO EVACUATE FOR A SECOND TIME... we loaded the car with Biscuit, our dog, and all the family videos and photos, computers and some irreplaceable valuables and headed off to Cerritos and Mayma's house to escape the smoke and ash. A stop in the evening at McDonald's in Cerritos and we find a One Dollar Bill, a quarter and 5 pennies.
