Tea Fire Update

It appears that we dodged a bullet with our particular location. Unfortunately, many others were not so lucky. They are estimating 210 lost houses. That's 210 families whose lives have been materially altered in just a few days. I can't imagine, but my thoughts and prayers go out to them during the cleanup and rebuilding effort. I wish I was out there to help in some physical way.

I'm so glad to hear the house is ok. I can't imagine the devistation those families are dealing with. I know it's material items, but our lives are captured in those material items. I heard the wind gusts were up to like 77 mph -- those flames were movin' at that rate. Again, glad you both are safe, and still have those material possessions!

I'm thankful you guys were spared loss and I'll definitely be praying for those who weren't as lucky!
