Watching the smoke billow from the burning house made us realize how ill-prepared we are. We've been meaning to take inventory for insurance purposes for ages and our "go-bags" are only half packed. So, this week's theme will be fire focused as Hubby & I research and implement fire preparation tactics. I'm going to figure out:
- How I can help prevent this from happening to us
- What a "go-bag" should contain
- How to best inventory a home (including some neat tips)
- Whatever else I need to learn to be "fire safe" & cover our butts if this happens to us

The pics are a touch blurry because a) it was really flippin' cold out so we snapped 'em from inside & b) we didn't want to be those people-the ones who cause car accidents by rubber necking to see an accident. So we peeped from our window. But, we didn't get a super good view because our backyard has a few nice trees:
Feel free to contribute your own tips, concerns, etc this week. And don't worry, I won't be all doom & gloom. I'll still be posting fun stuff too. Fire safety week won't interrupt the regularly scheduled programming!
