More fires

November 16, 2008

We have been having lots more fires since I last posted the link to the Santa Barbara fire!! The air around here is so bad, lots of smoke and haze in the air. Whenever you go outside all you can smell is smoke! Thankfully they aren’t close to my house, but they are close to the homes of people in our church. Several were not able to make it to church today! The freeway situation has been pretty bad too, lots of closures! It takes hours to get somewhere because everyone has to all converge on just a few freeways!

Please keep our firefighters in your prayers as they struggle to put out all these fires. Also all of the people who have been affected by the fires, many homes have burned!!   (I live near the number 10 on the map, if you can see it)

    Wow, that’s crazy. My dad and brothers were trying to get back from Newport Beach and it took hours! I was so thankful that I didn’t need any of those freeways! I heard that someone was trying to make it back to this area from OC and it took 5 hours! Insane!!!
    I hope you are feeling better, Renae. The air seems to be clearing up somewhat!
    Aww, sorry about the nail, James. 😉
