far from the fire...

Thanks for the concern....I live in town... quite a ways from the fire and flames....

I have several friends under mandatory evacuation as of this morning....and pray their homes are not in the fire's destructive path. The air quality warnings are out especially for seniors and children. Arnold has declared a state of emergency.

Thousands of acres have been and will be destroyed. Containment isn't anticipated until late tomorrow evening.

Hubby and I were watching this on the computer a short time ago. I'm glad you are not in the mix. My thoughts and prayers for those that are. It's going to be a long hot summer isn't it? Big hug. :)

The California wild fires are starting much too early this year (it would be nice if they didn't start at all!). Glad to hear that you're safe and out of harm's way. Hope it stays that way!

I just saw the news tonight (been away) and thought of you as soon as I heard where it was.

Glad to hear you're safe and sound, and I sure hope they get a handle on it soon!
