Evacuated: Fire preparedness

As far too many people are discovering this summer, you can no longer conclude that a wildfire could "never happen to me."

A reader wrote in about her experiences evacuating her ranch in the southern Black Hills of South Dakota in advance of a wildfire. She wrote an extremely thoughtful and useful analysis of the realities of facing a long (and possibly permanent) absence from one's home, called Evacuated: Fire Preparedness.

Fear aside, this is a neat blog to check out, documenting how a family is striving toward self-sufficiency.
