Yes, I am safe; I live closer to the ocean. However, things are not looking good for the community. This afternoon the winds shifted and the fire is moving towards downtown. Half of the downtown area has been evacuated as the fire moves down behind the Mission. This is our THIRD major fire in the past 10 months! Lots of homes in the foothills have burned today and firefighters say tonight is going to be a nightmare. Thanks for thinking of me and please pray for our firefighters.
