Well, it’s been an interesting week around the Blooming Bath office. As those who live in San Diego County (where our headquarters are located) are well aware, California Gov. Jerry Brown declared the area in a state of emergency on Wednesday as high temperatures and excessive winds aided in the spread nine wildfires throughout the region.
Luckily, there were no injuries reported from the fires, but thousands of residents were advised to evacuate their homes as well as those in attendance at local schools and working in local businesses, including us here at Blooming Bath.
The smoke and fire got close enough to our Carlsbad office for us to snap the above photo before we were advised to evacuate for our safety.
On Wednesday, we closed the Blooming Bath office at 2 p.m. and phone and email communications ceased as well as our regular mail and package carrier pickups. Blooming Bath employees are safely back in the office today and getting back to our customer’s phone and email messages as well as getting back to shipping out our Blooming Bath for babies bath tubs. Many schools in the area, however, including San Diego Unified School District are still closed today.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the residents in the area dealing with fires on their properties and businesses and with the firefighters who are hard at work protecting us. Thank you!
