In case you havent seen her thread in Off Topic, Bonnie in Alberta ( Fort McMurray ) is in the middle of the devastating and horrendous fires...she is waiting to be able to evacuate but the roads are blocked at the moment. She is safe, and her family is safe at present, but they are all terrified.....sending her the best of white light, and safety....

It's like a war...with 88000 refugees. We're packed and ready to go, they're saying we have to have cash because no one is taking debit or credit cards........but they're also saying not to evacuate unless the fire is close. The highways are jammed and no one is moving. My poor Liam is in shock he came out on Monday with just his backpack......we're all alive and all the dogs are here...I just saw that the police have picked up dozens of abandoned pets Twisted Evil

Oh Bonnie, I am so sorry...but like you said, you and yours are safe....

It must be unimaginable to see your hometown burning like that. So sorry.

Dear God, Bonnie.

Just been watching the devastation on the news. I just cannot imagine the shock, fear and desolation you must be feeling. Please know you, your family, your neighbours and everyone involved are in our thoughts, our hearts and our prayers xx

You must do whatever it takes to stay safe. Everything can be replaced other than your lives, so stay safe.

We will be watching for news and won't rest until we know you are safe.

God speed xxx

Jennifer just checked the update for Anzac and we're still alright....there's been a car accident about an hour south of here that has caught the trees on fire so they've closed the highway to Edmonton from here.....praying it doesn't become a full blown forest fire.

Bonnie xxxxxxxx

Oh Bonnie and family, this is so tragic I have no words left. I can only repeat that all my thoughts are with you all, and that I hope and wish with all my heart that today will see the end of this horrific situation. I also hope you have reached a safe place and can rest a little before facing this new day.

We made it out and the last twitter report I read is Anzac is on fire

I'm in the car with the dogs and everyone else is in the camper.

Our house is on a hill so I'm hoping it doesn't go but I'm sure it has.

This is like a bad dream.

Bonnie xx

I was talking to a young girl tonight that told me her cat escaped from her carrier and ran off...she was frantic! I would be too. 2 people were killed and I pray no one else dies. They were evacuating and hit an oil tanker head on.....just awful. It's eerie and smoky but Gus has calmed down.

Bonnie xx

All I have is time right now, I'm in the car with both dogs and everyone else is asleep. Gus' breeder emailed me and kindly offered to take us in. I think if our home is gone we will go to Winnipeg and stay there. If by some miracle we didn't burn then we'll return, my husband has a building company and the rebuilding will keep them busy for years to come. Our son is very ill and will be either going with us or coming back home.

Bonnie xx

reading one paper here this morning they have only mentioned that a mobile caravan park has been burnt down .. They really need to get their facts right as to how much worse than that it is there .. But I suppose that's never going to happen
