Fires!!!

This is just a quick post....we are in an area of evacuation due to brush fires in our area. We have some things packed and ready to grab in case we have to leave quickly.

Last night we could see flames on the hills when we looked out our upstairs windows. I have been up all night and HB only had a little sleep. The air quality is terrible and the sky looks eerily yellow.

I have been taking lots of photos but my desktop computer is unhooked and ready to leave so I won't be uploading anything until I can use it. This photo is from ABC7....




If you live in Southern CA and hear the news reports we are in the Rancho Vista area.

So far, so good....I just hope it stays that way. I'll try to post as soon as I know anything else.

  7. Hope all is safe with you and your family out there, I have some family that lives out in Palm Dale area and I only hope and pray that they are safe too.

    Keep a damp cloth over your nose and mouth if you have to go outdoors and be sure to drink plently of fluids, that smoke can surely dry you up fast.

  13. You know I am thinking about you, lady! I had hoped to hear that it had gotten under control by the time I was able to get back on here today....
    Sending all the prayers and good thoughts up towards you and HB that I can. It's overcast here, so hopefully some of that cooler air will be up there too, helping them get it under control. Praying for that to happen ASAP. Stay safe and let us know how you're doing, when you can. ((HUGS))
