Found some beautiful (and sad, of course) photos of the Western U.S. wildfires on Twitter yesterday via the 350.org Twitter account. Though I don't live in an area with very many natural disasters (we might get a hurricane or a blizzard every few years, but that's about it), it's a reminder -- what would you grab if you had to evacuate quickly? I for one, am highly aware that I have way too much crap in order to make a quick decision. Heck, the only thing I protected when Hurricane Irene came through last year was my backup hard drive (we didn't need to evacuate, but there was a very real danger of trees falling onto the house and making a huge mess.)

It's also a reminder that minimalism and being green do go together. If you have less stuff, you're more aware of what you have and can make more use of what you have, instead of getting more stuff.

Although maybe I'll think about making a bug-out bag, just in case of zombies.

I think I'd take my laptop, money/cards/etc and if within reach and I have time, some sketchbooks with my drawings and some food. Though I have all my drawings scanned and my stories on my computer, so my laptop is the most important thing next to money/cards. Food is also important probably, otherwise I'll faint from hunger or something... (>.>)
