So much so much. Since we have been with you last. I literally got off a plane from Europe a last night. And then I'm and I'm here. I'm so grateful to be here. I have a little recording that I did over overseas as well that will play for you. But we have to start with fancy. I am so happy you're here. I'm so happy to see you. There's a can't believe what's gone on in California's since I've begun specifically what happened to you A the Facebook group our online people have been so extrordinary, but will you fill everybody in on what happened to you? Absolutely. First of all did you hear the news over there were they covering it up? So in Europe, all the there was the awful shootings here in California. And then these wildfires that destroyed so many lives, and so many homes. I was watching just in horror. No idea how close to home that was right? Well, I I want to say that I'm really grateful to be here today. This is a great distraction for me because the week if if anyone has ever lost everything it's a really bizarre surreal feeling and I'm good. And I'm in gratitude, and I'm all let's tell people what happened if they day. No, I my home burned down, my home, my home burned down. Yeah. I woke up it was a windy night that Thursday night and the winds they felt different. They just felt different to me. Not even texted my neighbors things different. I can't put my finger at felt wearily. You knew I felt like I knew in my dogs. New Howard my dog couldn't didn't sleep the whole night. I just knew it was really odd. And then I woke up in the morning, it was kind of a normal morning, but windy, and then these huge billowing the Bill smoke just started coming over the ridge. And of course, she and everything your place is going to catch on fire. So I'm like, I'm staying I'm gonna fight it. You know? Yeah. Remember you saying, you know, it's it's going to be okay. We're going to be fine every dramatic over here. And plus me live in we live in southern California. With the things happen. The hill behind my house catches on fire three times a year. And I'm just oh God. Well, how annoy put it out and be smokey. Yeah. So the neighbors I have two two neighbors that live across these guys named Lauren and James, and they knew I was going to stay and try to fight it, you know, but they had come back. They had driven their car up the road, and they had seen the fire starting to come over the ridge. And so they came back and yelled at me for to leave. So I knew in their tone that I needed to leave. They just seen senior report scene where the wind was headed. And like, yeah, they meant it. Right. They drove up the street, and they saw the fire coming and they came down there like Fags e get out. And I knew when they said that that I needed to get out. But in that moment where you just I got to get out because it's going to be really close to the house. And that could be scary. I mean, did you even at that point realize that it could really burn down? No, I still didn't. It was almost like a cosmic push. You know, like it felt like something else was pushing me to go like I just knew I needed to leave. So I grabbed a backpack. I put my picture, my mom, and at and I grabbed my laptop and two pairs of underwear and a t shirt like you grab the weirdest things. It was just bizarre. And then grab my dogs, of course, and got in the car, and they said drive down to the beach. So I drove down to the beach. I looked up and this wall of fire was right there in front of me. And I just stopped. I was in shock. I was like I've never seen anything like that. And so I mean that close and seeing these images on the news does not do it. I mean when you're in it, it is it was epic. It looked like Armageddon. You know, it looked like it was crazy. And so I went down to the beach. And this was a scary part. I was all by myself with my dogs on the beach and everybody was kind of like a zombie. We were all in shock watching this. Happen. And we were watching the fire over the ridge. And I noticed that it was like a tornado, you know, like the by a fire tornado. And this just it was it was turning. And it went all over my neighborhood. And it was like an asteroid came down and just on debt. Like, it just it would fling. You know, they say like the fires make the embers travel and then the embers catching on fire. It was picking up huge pieces of debris, and and things and they were on fire. And so we're ever at flung it wherever it landed. It would just go up in smoke. So I was on the beach like watching my neighborhood, just burn and and see the black smoke come up and it get closer. And then it started getting close to be on the beach. So I start I ran off the beach with my dogs. And that's when things were falling in front of me with fire, and I got in my car, and I drove up I drove south and I ended up at the center watching the fire burn my neighborhood from kind of like like an upper the center up there, that's kind of raised. And so we were watching everything burn, and we were crying. And I think the hardest thing for me. Was that a? To see um. Not only my neighborhood destroyed like that and my community, but the animals the animals really got me like. That I had to see the parrots. And the butterflies and the Ps or scared and the hawks and the owls and horses were running a PCH trying to escape and they're coming out of the fields. We were all just standing there. Like in shot. We didn't it was so shocking that our neighborhood was burning. You know, what I mean like, but the animals just really they really did it. I just that part really got me. And so I then drove around the point which is another neighborhood across PCH. Highway along the coast, right. Myself. And I was really scared because I was all by myself in another really weird thing was that you know, none of the we didn't stick stick together. I think we all went into survival mode and just took care of ourselves. And went, you know, I it was really bizarre that I didn't have anybody around me that I knew and then on the when I was in the other neighborhood. I was just driving around. I didn't know where to go. And then finally the fire started getting close to there where I was. And so I said, I'm just driving to blue sky. I'm driving. I'm gonna drive south. I'm just gonna go as far as I can go. And that's what I did. I just kept driving, and I still didn't know where to go. I mean, the feeling of not knowing where to go is. So when would you ever have that in your life? Happen in your life, except during something like this like you don't ever do anything to prepare for that feeling where did you go? Well, I went I for some reason, I clicked on hints to Graham in the car, and a friend of mine had responded to something that I was posting about the fire when I didn't think it was going to hit. And I just knew that I needed to call her. She's an old friend of mine, and she's just said go to my house. I'm in Hawaii. And I'm not no one's there. And just go there, and my house is your house. And and that's what I did. And that's where I bet and you still there. I'm still there. Yeah. And she's still in Hawaii. She's still in Hawaii. She'll be there through thanksgiving. So you have what? What what what belongings? Do you have? I have not perish shorts that I'm wearing right now. This is the same pair ran out in. I have a couple of new pairs of shirt that I bought at target but going to target I was talking to Gerard. You know, it's it's I have like I think a post traumatic stress thing going on because it's hard for me to focus when I went to target. I had a panic attack. Because I it just went there to pick up a couple of things. But then I started realizing. So many things that I needed and it overwhelm me. And then I just dropped everything and ran out because I I can't think straight. We're getting to thank you. So yeah, I just have what I have like, I don't have anything. And I rented out a garage. They're a converted garage. And I have no fire insurance don't renter's insurance. So I lost everything except my car my dogs in me, and my laptop well, the most important the most important things you have right. The most important things. I think you Nikki, you have you have you. Yeah. You have your dogs that. Yeah. If your phone. But you have us. Yeah. I hope you feel that you know, all we can do is send you our love and show up for you. And do whatever we can to help you. Thank you. We love you. Thank you. I love you too. So sorry. Thank you. I'm just you know, I'm really filled with gratitude on the other side of it. I I've been going to gratitude. So that's helping me on the outpouring of love and support from the straight talker has literally held me up, and I'm just beyond. It's almost like I don't have words to describe it. You know, it's just when these things happen. Like my social media. My phone was blowing up like people were really concerned about where I was where I was going to go, you know. And so it helped me through it helped me through you know, like there's people that left me really see how many people love you. And I hope you see how many people love you. And I wonder you know. In those times. Like, I hope you feel the family that you have here like in the studio in your life, and the extended family of all these straight talkers who oh, you have come together in such an extraordinary way that we're gonna tell you tell the audience about if they don't know already. We're gonna be talking more about that coming up in just a little bit. But. Oh. Is this still the prayer? This is still the prayer. We have the phone was just ringing right there. Jay rods running out of the studio right now to into the control room to see if we can get that phone up. Are you there? Hello. Hello. Hi. Who is this? All right. Chris Chris, I know who it is. Chris I want you to say hi to Z. Z Z. Hi, chris. So Chris, are you? I'm good. What Chris is a listener of the show and a kiss kiss to you. Chris. All right. The chrish is a loyal listener to this program and a beloved member of the straight talk group a community group. And Chris will you tell the facts he was just sharing the news about his house burning down with the audience, some many people who listened to procam aren't members of the Facebook group are potentially hearing this for the very first time. Chris can you tell me what you chose to do because I think is just so extrordinary. We wanted to have you on the phone to maybe put a silver lining. Yeah. On on this awful story. Chris. I I just I really wanted to help him out. He helped me out a lot. So I started a gofundme page, and I started with a two thousand dollar goal, which I thought you know, that would be awesome and a couple of days to reach that. And then within. Hours had surpassed that and I got a hold of Nikki to make sure it was. Okay. You know, I didn't want to overstep my boundaries. And I think right now, we're at a little over thirteen thousand dollars and believing all from straight talkers. I am. I it I'm speechless. It's so crazy I've been crying for days. Oh my God. Amazing. Yeah. And let me tell you something if there is any silver lining on this story. It is about your impact on Chris on the human level before this and Chris use stepping up to try to help and the community surpassing expectations. Let me tell you. If you look around this world, this goes for us everybody, you look around this world and wonder if there's any human kindness left because when you watch the news on the TV, I question it everyday is there left in this world. The straight talk group. It's been proven to me now. Yeah. This straight talkers set an example for the rest of the world's right? And if there's any thing good to come out of this, those are the two things one facts that you are loved on what you even ever expect expected. Yeah. I'm like blown away by that. That made me cry all week. I cried about that. Because we do the podcast we go home. And we're in our world in our lives and stuff. And I don't know who it's reaching. I don't really know, you know. And then when something like this happens, you see how much you're loved, and that's what I saw this week. So I'm I'm blown away. Like, that's all I can say Chris what I love about. You is that you you didn't waste any time. As soon as you got wind for lack of a term. The fire you immediately sprung to action.
