Déjà vu has never held a negative connotation to me, until June 26th, 2011, the first day of the Las Conchas fire.
Once again, I was at a distance while my friends and family wondered if their homes would be threatened by the flames. Thankfully, this outcome was much different than that of the Cerro Grande fire, when my family and many friends did lose their homes.
This time around, I was at least in a position to offer some assistance. I jumped on Facebook and posted that I had a guest room in Albuquerque available to anyone who may need it. Many followed suit. It didn’t take long to realize that someone in need of a place to stay would not have the time or wherewithal to search back through all the Facebook postings to discover these available locations. I took down all of the information and offered my phone number to evacuees looking for temporary housing.
