Home Sweet Home

Thank you all so much for your prayers and good wishes. I am overwhelmed by your kindness. We are home and we are safe.

This is not how our sky and yard look just now, what with all the smoke, ash and debris, but it all looks wonderful to us. The fire came within about 5 miles this time (in the 2003 Cedar fire, the fire came within 2 miles of our house.) It has been an anxious time for everyone, but we are so, so lucky. If you have been watching the news, you will have seen pictures of the widespread devastation. It is not over, but for us the danger is past. We are conserving energy and water, so I will only use the computer for a short time today.

Thank you again, I am so grateful I have no words.

Wow what a scary time - I am glad that the fires are contained, and that they missed you. Keep taking care of yourself!

Didn't realize you lived in this area. I was praying for everyone, though, and checking on high school friends now living near Alpine. So thankful that you are all right and broken hearted for all the pain and disrupted lives.
