Fires Update

First off, we are o.k. The fires are close enough to us that we have ash on the ground all around us, and we have some friends that were evacuated that spent the night here. Our street has not been evacuated and our neighborhood is quiet.

It is so sad to think that so many homes have burned to the ground. So many families lost everything last night. We are so blessed to be safe, to be able to keep our friends safe too.

Pray for our firefighters and for the wind to die down. Pray for containment. Pray for rain.

You have been in our thoughts and prayers. There is a bit of a haze in the air all the way up here. Hope it isn't smoke I sometimes smell too. Love you all.
