Fire!

According to our fire chief, “last night, all hell broke loose.”

It sure felt and looked like it. With cars packed, we left. The neighborhood, now deserted. Nothing there for us to do, but wait. The Husband went back this morning to check. All was still there, under a thick layer of ash, untouched.

We’re at a friend’s house, but now as of this morning we found out their home is in the evacuation warning zone.

The prediction for tonight are for the same hot violent winds. Anything could happen.

Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers.

We are safe. Our family is together. The other things, replaceable.
