Please keep all of us and our Firefighters in your thoughts and prayers. My son is one of those Firefighters and will be on the front lines today. 

One of these fires is less than a mile from my home, heading the other way thankfully, but many many homes are in it’s path.

Absolutely! Our prayers are with all of the people up there. I’m sure it’s scary. My friend emailed me a picture that she took from her patio and off in the distance you could see the fires. It’s crazy.

I want to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers for everyone affected by these fires. The 2 fires in my area, Yucaipa, are 100% and 75% contained. Please continue your thoughts and prayers for the Firefighters and others in Southern California, as there are still some huge fires in the LA area that are still raging.

Thank you very much everyone.

I hope everything turned out all right. In my younger days I found myself fighting fires in California and around the Canada and the U.S. It was always scary, and exhilarting all at the same time.
