Have you tried the Salted Carmel Whiskey? It is amazing!!! Mix is with Dr Pepper and it's like a carmel cream soda!

Found this in my uploads when looking for the whiskey pic and thought I would post

The death toll has been updated to 13. My brother and I are getting ready to go into town and assess the damage to the shop. We're also going to volunteer with the recovery/clean up crew. Don't waste time with Red Cross, if you can get there get there and help directly.

Our shop still in tact..

Rainbow efficiencies in tact:

McKinney market/Travelers efficiencies destroyed:

We only did a quick pass through part of town. The volunteer services are at shelters.These are the only pictures I could get.

I'm having a hard time waking up to this every day.

Just read on Facebook that Mr. Reeds family has been found deceased unfortunately. My heart breaks for him and so many of the other peoples stories that go untold.

Aqua, stay strong! Glad that your shop remains intact. I hope you are able to settle into a new normal soon.

a reply to: Doodle19815 Sad news,pray that there isn`t more to come.I hope they catch whoever has been starting the fires and throw the book at them.This was the worst fire in over 100 years in this state and I hope never to see anything like it again.

Glad your shop is still intact! So much devastation out there! My heart breaks for all the people affected and all the buildings lost. Horrible!

So we spent the whole day volunteering with the sevierville rescue squad. A couple of us sorted out goods and I was basically involved with stacking and wrapping pallets to go on trucks.

I'll tell you, I've been deeply depressed since this all went down. Today really seemed to help with that more than anything.

Everyone was talking against the red cross. Probably 100 volunteers sorted through 100,000 dollars worth of goods today only and we will be back tomorrow.

Must have wrapped 40 skids worth of everything one could need.

Looks like they arrested two teens for these fires.


Sources familiar with the teenagers and the investigation but not authorized to speak publicly about the case say the two boys are friends and live in Anderson County. The boys were hiking on the Chimney Tops trail in the park on Nov. 23 and tossing lit matches onto the ground around the trail, the sources said. A hiker unwittingly captured an image of the boys walking away from the trail with smoke in the background, and the teenagers' clothing helped authorities identify them, according to sources.

The oldest boy is the son of an Anderson County Sheriff's Office employee, according to sources.
