Hello my name is Jessyca Smith and I managed the Skyway RV Park in Paradise, Ca and on Nov 8th my morning started just like everyday. I was having coffee and getting my daughter Skyy ready for school.  When my husband appeared in a panic and said there was a fire coming up close to our property line.  When immediately went around the RV park and started waking up our tenants and making sure they began to evacuate.  We loaded our daughter Skyy and my mother in law into our truck and headed down Skyway which ended up being a nightmare.  By that time ,the fire had overcome the whole area and they routed us into the Walgreens parking lot, soon we were asked to exited our vehicles and entered the Walgreens building.  As the fire approached we went to the back of the store and we set there waiting, which seemed like hours.  I thought here is where I'm going to die as I held my 7 year old daughter and silently cried, as the fire roared over us.  Soon they were directing us on a school bus, but it was filling up fast...only one seat left when the fire fighter saw my daughter ' We have a child he called out' and I said my mother and I can stand but there was no room for my husband.  My heart sank as we loaded on the bus, would this be the last time I saw him, would we even make it out alive.  We had made a pack prior if we got separated to go to the Lowe's parking lot in Chico and that would be our meeting spot.  As we drove off in the bus my husband jumped in our trunk, that by the grace of God had not been destroyed, and he took off.  We made it out and so did he, with nothing more then the clothes on our back and our truck.  We unfortunately did not have insurance and like others have applied for all the FEMA assistance but its taking its time.  We did not get into a hotel that is working with FEMA so all this is coming out of our pockets at this time and  we are quickly running out of money.   We have a few basic needs met but we need to be out of the hotel room soon, before we use up all our cash. We have secured an RV spot and are hoping to get a small travel trailer so any donation that you'd be willing to give our family would be greatly appreciate no matter how big or small we will put it towards getting our lives back to some normalcy.  Thank you in advance and God bless you all. Amen!
