I’m trying to help, but I was locked out of PayPal when I tried to log in. I have to wait til customer service opens before I can unlock my account and donate.

RE: how to help Jdiggins
This is horrible news. Sending prayers. What else can we do to help?

What business was she in? Maybe there is something there we can help with, too.

I was thinking the same thing.

how to help Jdiggins
Hi everyone.
Forrest said to read the blogs for entertainment. For over four years now I've been a part of this chase and have come to know you all as my chase family. I never blogged before, but found myself absorbed in the conversations and reading the thoughts of you, my fellow searchers. My husband has had a hard time adjusting to my involvement, as such, but he's always understood how important it was to me. Now his understanding is even greater!

On July 27th, the Ranch fire started. We even drove by it coming home from getting supplies for the business. It was a good twenty miles from our home, and It didn't look that big. Our wonderful firefighters
are usually able to knock out a fire pretty quick.
When we got home about a half hour later, we turned on the scanner. We could here the firefight first hand. It was up to 300 acres and one firefighter commented, "if we had some air support we could knock this thing out right now".
Unfortunately, the folks in Redding, Yosemite and several other ares were dealing with much larger incidents and our California strike teams were already stretched thin.
On July 28th, my friend and business partner was evacuated from her home, also our business location. That night we lost both her home and the company, along with everything we had both been working hard and investing significantly to support our families.
On July 29th, we were evacuated, along with half the county, per se, due to the now dual fires rapidly advancing toward us. We loaded as much clothing and personal items in our truck and trailer as we could. We got our dog, but couldn't get our two cats.
My husband started the rv and noticed it was leaking oil. Regardless, I drove the truck and trailer and he the rv, and we fled down the five mile dirt road toward safety. We eventually had to leave the rv as it broke down, finally emerging with our truck and trailer.
Luckily we have been hosted by my husband's brother and his wife, but it's hard to not feel like a burden after so long. I've since been glued to the reports of my local friends, Facebook news, etc. I watched this fire devour everything in its path.
On August 3rd, I saw a local video that showed where my home was, engulfed in a 300 foot high, quarter mile or more wall of flame. Just a small section in comparison to the scope of this monster.
All I can say at this point is that I am only one of many that lost virtually everything EXCEPT our lives. We made it to safety. My daughter made it to safety. Everyone made it to safety. Thanks due to the outstanding efforts of our law enforcement, first responders and the like. They are absolutely amazing!
And so are all of you. Forrest, Dal, Kpro, Jenny, Senn, Cowlazers (mike), janet...i can't even remember how many folks are in on this recovery effort for me. I am beside myself with the outpouring of love and support. Thank you EVERYONE for your kind comments, thoughts, prayers and support. Thanks to all of you it makes the weight of uncertainty and fear feel a whole lot lighter. God bless!!!

I’m so glad you and your family are safe, jamie.

If there is anyone else affected by the fire I can help that needs it, let me know...

Oh, and I just donated a lump sum instead of $25 increments. I don’t care about the prizes in the raffle—just happy to help. Smile

RE: how to help Jdiggins
A lump sum is fine. For every $25 you get a entry in the drawing lump sum or not.

Also FF coin #003 and #002 will be in the drawing if we hit $10K and $15K.

RE: how to help Jdiggins
If a penny was saved instead of spent on the chase would one be in a better position?
Nobody knows whats around the corner. For all but one it won't be the chest. Better to plan for the bad days, than dream and plan for what could be a good day.
Food for thought.

For the record, I would now like to be entered into the drawing.
