Wow! That's pretty scary!! (to all of you!) I've been very fortunate and haven't had to deal with anything like that. The scariest thing that's ever happened to me was having to ride my horses (yes, RIDE the horses. We had no horse trailer and five minutes to get out.) away from the fire that was threatening to jump the interstate and burn our house down... Luckily, the fire didn't jump the interstate and a neighbor (who had several horse trailers and a place to take his animals if the fire were to chase them out) kept our horses until it was put out.
Now, of course, I am knocking on wood...not that I am a superstitious person
