At about 9:30am this morning, I was looking at the local news and noticed that the entire city of paradise was under evacuation. In an immediate state of panic, I call my dad, who said that The Camp Fire was in upper paradise and that Magalia might be evacuated but he would be fine, “no big deal” as he would say. By 12:30pm he was on the road with the dogs, only able to pack some clothes, thinking the evacuation would be lifted a few hours later. Then, like the rest of the paradise community, our worlds were flipped upside down. The whole city is demolished, apparently nothing left but ash. My dads house is gone, along with the rest of the community who called Paradise home. Our worst nightmares have come to life, and I believe it is our job to help these people when we can and are able to. Let’s show this community that we care.
Anything helps. ❤️
