My box of family photos and special things.. It's basically just one box, but it has old letters and pictures and just so many stories to tell.
Hmm, that's a tough one...I'd probably try to salvage something from my grandfather who was my favorite person in the entire world. Perhaps photographs, maybe a piece of jewelry he gave me...
After the "loved ones and pets" are safe, I'd go in for the wife.Seriously, though, I second Carrie's comment. I'd try and save photos & video types of the kids while growing up.Mac
Well, I would be remissed if I did not pass along my personal perspective. As a fireman, and a life safety eduactor, we teach kids during fire safety to "Get out and Stay out!" In other words..... once you get out of the house that is on fire, you do not go back in for any reason. Not your toys, dog, cat, brother, sister, mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, aunts, uncles, or cousins twice removed. Let the properly trained and equipped professionals do what we do.It's not the fire that kills most people in a burning building, it's the smoke, heat and gasses. You will be overcome before you realize it. Just my two cents worth.
Personally, I'd stand back and watch it burn. Disheartening yes but there's only one thing that I'd honestly go back in after, and even then, memories would do me fine. That would be the family Bible. I'm not religious but the Bible has births and deaths from generations back, letters, pictures, and assorted other items. But honestly, I don't think I'd go back in, nor would I let anyone other than Mr. Firefighter go in.
I'd grab some of my artwork and then some of the sentimental items from my parents....
Humm, tricky. I would go to one room and with a hand for each item (because one is never enough) grab my twenty four year old cactus and my teddy from when I was small. I know this is cheating, but you tend to want to keep the things that are irreplaceable.Or I would get my mobile phone because by this point I should have phoned the fire brigade.Or the electrical safety manual I should have read.Or the phone number of that very very cheap gas engineer.Or go back with an 'Acme Inc. Everlasting Fire Extinguisher'.Sorry got a bit silly towards the end ;-)
If it's my apartment, I'd probably grab the only irreplacable items we have...photos and videos we have taken over the years. If it's my house, where we don't store stuff like this, I'd take my car keys. Or marshmallows.
our external hard drive...it's got back ups of both of our machines on it as well as all of our photos...I'd wanna grab it if I could in order to save the photos :-)-E
Would have to go in and get the guitars. I have a lot of music equipment, but the three irreplaceable items are as follows:1978 Acoustic my grandmother bought for me1979 Rickenbacker 4001 bass with Fireglo finish(I traded almost everything I had at the time to acquire it)1966 Fender Precision fretless (my current main squeeze)
As always, interesting comments!! :)My answer would be to come in and grab as many photo albums as my arms would allow. I'm a very sentimental person, what can I say? lolWhen I asked Rick the same question over dinner, his answer was disgustingly rational. With little hesitation, "I'd grab the file cabinet from the office. Its got all of our important papers in it."Smart bastard. ;)xoxo
As much as I despise the damned thing at times, becuase I get snapped at about it, held as a second class citizen to it at times (not really but that's the way it feels) I suppose I would have to toss the computer out the damned window, followed by our plethora of data CD's and follow them out. I know hubby could salvage both hard drives, even if I destroy the rest of the computer (Ce La Vie! So Sorry hon! *dripping sarcasm here*). All of our important documents and sentimental pictures are electronically backed up. As for everything else... BURN BABY BURN! At least I would still have my life and my family. I've lost everything I ever owned several times in my life, enough to know that it CAN be replaced.
